Here is why the truth matters. It was all very well for jesting Pilate to ask that question and then not to tarry for an answer. But that question that he asked, “what is the truth?” is the question which underlies every question and in the end it is the only question that really matters. When you ask that question what you are really asking is “what is the truth about the matter?” And we are now going to see why it matters morally, socially, and politically, as well as economically and scientifically. That the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth should inform public policy on this question.
“The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down” is about the Danville train, the main supply line into Richmond during the War Between the States. During the Siege of Petersburg Stoneman’s Yankees “tore up the track again.” The siege lasted from June 1864 until April 1865, when both Petersburg and Richmond fell. The Confederates were starving: “We were hungry; Just barely alive.” The South lost but forever afterwards, Southerners vowed to rise again.
