  • Sorry, that's incorrect
    Answer:

    "...like men."  Patrick Cleburne was a native-born Irishman who had moved to Arkansas before the war.  He joined the Southern cause and quickly rose from the lowest rank of private to that of major general.  One of the most respected soldiers on either side, Cleburne was prevented from advancing further after he publicly proposed arming slaves and allowing them to fight for their freedom in the Confederacy.  William Hardee offered this epitaph after Cleburne was killed at Franklin: "Where this division defended, no odds broke its line; where it attacked, no numbers resisted its onslaught, save only once; and there is the grave of Cleburne."
