The Plan of the PeopleIn the United States our people have acted of a higher and better principle, that every man is a sovereign citizen having the right to bear arms and that only a small percentage of the physical force is required in practical military service. Our principle has been to maintain only a small standing army, and to rely on the militia of the several states as a grand reserve that could be utilized, and within a short time efficiently organized for use in time of war. Yet all men between the ages of eighteen and forty-five could be made available in case of a serious war, such as the invasion of the country.[New-York Tribune, New-York, Sunday, February 17, 1907. Vol. LXVI....No. 22,008. Pg. 27]
