Gen. Jubal Early

The McClellan papers generally follow the advice of the Richmond Enquirer, and call their opponents Abolitionists.  The word does not frighten any one now.

As tweedle-dum is to tweedle-dee, so is a secessionist to a “cessationist”.

The Springfield Republican says:  “Gen. Early’s name is Jubal, and the day of Jubal E. has come.”    — “Why are all the rebels in the dumps at this date?  ‘Tis  because Jubal Early can no more jublilate!”
