Mr. Swindall moderated this debate between two Presbyterian ministers

on the morality of the Union and the Confederacy. They examined the

causes of the war and debated which side was more morally

responsible for the death and destruction which resulted from the

war. Marshall argued that the Union was correct for trying to end

slavery and preserve the United States. Wilkins argued that the

Confederacy was improperly invaded because southern states had the

right to leave the Union and that the South was ready to gradually

end slavery before radical abolitionism engendered such fierce

opposition. Marshall is the author of Sounding Forth the Trumpet.

Wilkins is the author of [Call of Duty: The Sterling Nobility of

Robert E. Lee]. close
