In a St. Louis Star-Times article dated March 26, 1941, William Snyder stated, "I  have observed public affairs since before the Civil War, but in none of these periods did I ever hear of the United States of America repudiating sacred covenants with its own citizens.  If the government for which I would always have been willing to die should take such a step, I will regret that I have lived to see the day."
