In the American Civil War, when the Northern States were pitted against the South in the fight for the freedom of the slaves, the soldiers of both sides had their own distinctive battle-dress. It is said that a man who lived near the border between North and South, uncertain on which side to throw his weight, thought he would escape the fire of both sides by a compromise. He donned the tunic of the Northerners and the trousers of the Southerners. But, in the battle, he found that, instead of being secure, his danger was doubled, for the tunic he wore drew the fire of the Southern army and his trousers the fire of the Northern army.
(Matt. 12. 30; Heb. 13. 13; Exod. 32. 26)
