It's not a direct quote as far as I know, it's paraphrased from a situation.
Union General Hancock and Confederate General Armistead had been best friends before the war, but now they fought for opposing sides, opposite sides of the field, but the two of them had sworn that they would not die at the hands of the other.
Oddly, it's said that after Picket's Charge, Armistead was mortally wounded and his last request was to see General Hancock so the two could meet again before he died.
Yeah, I know what I'm talking about.
