I was born in 1966, at the beginning of the Biafran-Nigerian Civil War, and the war ended after three years.

The Beginning Of The Civil War Quotes By Fuyumi Ono

A throne is always paid for in blood.
The king of En had told her that once. Even should a king's ascension be bloodless as a gift from Heaven, to hold onto one's throne invariably meant that blood must flow

The Beginning Of The Civil War Quotes By Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz

The Beginning Of The Civil War Quotes By Howard Blum

For at the beginning of the twentieth century, the nation had been struggling to find its way. Terror had raged, a second civil war had threatened to split the nation into new feuding armies, and the inequities of industrial life had brutalized too many lives. Three men who were caught up in those traumatic times, shaped by them, found with their talents, energy, and ideals a way out of it, both for themselves and for the nation. Darrow, Billy, D.W. were all flawed - egotists, temperamental, and too often morally complacent.

They were individuals willing to fight for their beliefs; and the legacy of their battles, their cultural and political brawls, remains part of our national consciousness. — Howard Blum

The Beginning Of The Civil War Quotes By Brian Steel Wills

Threats of retaliation had existed from early in the war. Historian Lonnie Speer notes that the Civil War devolved rapidly: "Within months of its beginning this conflict was anything but 'civil' and conducted by anyone but 'gentlemen.'"
