"I Can Consider It a Privilege to Die For My Country": Paul Jones Semmes

Before his death and knowing that he would die, Paul Jones Semmes said those words to a war correspondent. General Lee wrote that Semmes had "died as he lived, discharging the highest duty of a patriot with devotion that never faltered and courage that shrank from no danger." A Brave, Brave Man. --Old Secesh
