Lincoln's Words
"I appeal to you again to constantly bear in mind that with you, and not with politicians, not with Presidents, not with office-seekers, but with you, is the question, "Shall the Union and shall the liberties of this country be preserved to the latest generation?"
--Speech to Gov. Morton in Indianapolis, February 11, 1861
