1 It was high tide of devotion and pride in their hearts, high tide of the Confederacy, for final victory was at hand.
2 The war went on, successfully for the most part, but people had stopped saying "One more victory and the war is over," just as they had stopped saying the Yankees were cowards.
3 It was obvious to all now that the Yankees were far from cowardly and that it would take more than one victory to conquer them.
4 The Confederacy had scored a smashing victory, at Fredericksburg and the Yankee dead and wounded were counted in the thousands.
5 May came and the Confederacy won another great victory at Chancellorsville.
6 The news reached Atlanta almost simultaneously with the news of the victory at Chancellorsville, and the town fairly rocked with exultation and with laughter.
7 Chancellorsville might be a more important victory but the capture of Streight's raiders made the Yankees positively ridiculous.
8 One more victory and the war would be over, and then Darcy Meade could have all the boots he wanted, and the boys would come marching home and everybody would be happy again.
9 Atlanta and its railroads had played a big part in making Chickamauga a great victory for the South.
10 It was the greatest feat of the war, and Atlanta took pride and personal satisfaction in the thought that its railroads had made the victory possible.
11 Grant was a butcher who did not care how many men he slaughtered for a victory, but victory he would have.
12 Confidence in ultimate victory never wavered.
13 In victory or defeat, they were their boys.
14 The crowd cheered the troops as they would have cheered them in victory.
15 Well, she'd have to bear it meekly, much as she disliked it, if she expected to snatch victory from this debacle.
