Charles Dickens on the Uncivil War

"Union means so many millions lost to the South; secession means the loss of the same millions to the North. The Love of Money is the root of this as of many, many other evils….the quarrel between the North and the South, is, as it stands, solely a fiscal quarrel."
---- Charles Dickens, December 21,1861
