Something for the weekend.  God Save the South.  Written in 1861 by George Henry Miles, it served as the unofficial national anthem of the Confederacy.  Strong religious fervor helped sustain the Confederates through four bloody years, just as it would sustain them in the defeat they were about to endure one hundred and fifty years ago.
