About

“Fellow-citizens, we cannot escape history….The fiery trial through which we pass, will light us down, in honor or dishonor, to the latest generation.  In giving freedom to the slave, we assure freedom to the free — honorable alike in what we give, and what we preserve. We shall nobly save, or meanly lose, the last best hope of earth.”

The American President

Washington, D.C.

December 1, 1862
