How Long Is Too Long?

Back in the days when Americans thought some things were worth going to war over, we fought a bloody Civil War for four years, 1861-1865.

But hostilities did not end in 1865. The most famous "freedom fighters" who continued hostilities in the name of the Confederacy were the Jesse James outlaws. The bank robbers and murders and assassinations in the after math of the Civil war in America did not end until "Mr. Howard" [Jesse James] was gunned down in his home almost 30 years later. But Americans were all "cowboys" in those days and didn't believe in cutting and running when the going got tough.

"If you faint in the day of adversity, your strenth is small." [Prov. 24:10]
