Opinion of an Unionist April 27, 1861

From the Covington Journal

The Opinion of a Unionist
Mr. A.J. Morey, long the editor and proprietor of the Cynthiana News, an ardent Union paper, withdraws from its editorial control, in the last issue, and in  his valedictory says:
"We would just as soon expect to see Kentuckians rallying under the Stars and Stripes, if raised by the King of Dahomey, in Africa as to hear that they were taking up arms to support the policy now being pursued by Lincoln. I am now in favor of a Union of the South. Lincoln has driven us to the wall, and Union men must choose whether they will fight the Northern Abolitionists or their home folks.
