It is no coincidence that "Maryland, My Maryland" was made the state song in 1939, the same year "Gone With the Wind" fooled America into beleiving in "a land of Cavaliers and Cotton Fields called the Old South. Here in this pretty world, Gallantry took its last bow. Here was the last ever to be seen of Knights and their Ladies Fair, of Master and of Slave. Look for it only in books, for it is no more than a dream remembered, a Civilization gone with the wind..."

I shall move from Chattanooga when the Lieutenant-General orders me; ready or not ready. And if you don't have my army supplied, and keep it supplied, we'll eat your mules up, sir. – General William Tecumseh Sherman to the Quartermaster in Nashville. 1864
