PBC0147: pride in nation

PBC 147 exclaims the national pride held by nationalists in the years leading up to and during the Revolution and Civil War. Patriots proclaim, “I will never yield what was bequeathed to Rus’” (W517). Another emotes, “My motherland! My river source and mouth!” (W487). A common term used in this PBC is the ancient “Rus’.” One praises “our Russian Rus’” which lives and will live (W92).
