Carl Schurz Quote

The Senator from Wisconsin cannot frighten me by exclaiming, ‘My country, right or wrong.’ In one sense I say so too. My country; and my country is the great American Republic. My country, right or wrong; if right, to be kept right; and if wrong, to be set right.
Carl Schurz

Senate speech, Feb. 29, 1872. Source: Respectfully Quoted: A Dictionary of Quotations
