The bare sight of fifty thousand armed, and drilled black soldiers on the banks of the Mississippi, would end the rebellion at once. March 26, 1863 Letter to Andrew Johnson I would like to speak in terms of praise due to the many brave officers and soldiers who have fought in the cause of the war. We never should, and I am sure, never shall be niggard of gratitude and benefaction to the soldiers who have endured toil, privations and wounds, that the nation may live. August 10, 1863 Letter to Mrs. Hunter et al And then, there will be some black men who can remember that, with silent tongue, and clenched teeth, and steady eye, and well-poised bayonnet, they have helped mankind on to this great It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. November 19, 1863 Gettysburg Address While we are grateful to all the brave men and officers for the events of the past few days, we should, above all, be very grateful to Almighty God, who gives us victory. May 9, 1864 Response to a Serenade I am greatly obliged to you, and to all who have come forward at the call of their country. All this talk about the dissolution of the Union is humbug nothing but folly. We WONT dissolve the Union, and you SHANT. July 23, 1856 Speech at Galena, Illinois I do not expect the Union to be dissolved I do not expect the house to fall but I do expect it will cease to be divided. To the best of my judgment I have labored for, and not against the Union. October 29, 1858 Speech at Springfield, Illinois opinion is that no state can, in any way lawfully, get out of the Union, without the consent of the others; and that it is the duty of the President, and other government functionaries to run the machine as it is. December 17, 1860 Letter to Thurlow Weed When the people rise in masses in behalf of the Union and the liberties of their country, truly may it be said, The gates of hell shall not prevail against them. February 11, 1861 Reply to Governor Morton I hold, that in contemplation of universal law, and of the Constitution, the Union of these States is perpetual. I therefore consider that in view of the Constitution and the laws, the Union is unbroken; and to the extent of my ability I shall take care, as the Constitution itself expressly enjoins upon me, that the laws of the Union be faithfully executed in all the States. The Union is much older than the Constitution. It was formed in fact, by the Articles of Association in 1 It was matured and continued by the Declaration of Independence in 1 The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battle-field, and patriot grave, to every living heart and hearth-stone, all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature. I would save the Union. I would save it the shortest way under the Constitution. The sooner the national authority can be restored; the nearer the Union will be the Union as it was. We can scarcely dispense with the aid of West-Virginia in this struggle; much less can we afford to have her against us, in congress and in the field. Her brave and good men regard her admission into the Union as a matter of life and death. December 31, 1862 Opinion on the Admission of West Virginia into the Union He who does something at the head of one Regiment, will eclipse him who does nothing at the head of a hundred. December 31, 1861 Letter to David Hunter And now, beware of rashness. Beware of rashness, but with energy, dark relic 2010 trailer sleepless vigilance, go forward, and give us victories. January 26, 1863 Letter to Joseph Hooker Let your military measures be strong enough to repel the invader and keep the peace, and not so strong as to unnecessarily harrass and persecute the people. May 27, 1863 Letter to John M. Schofield I was deeply mortified by the escape of Lee across the Potomac, because the substantial destruction of his army would have ended the July 21, 1863 Letter to Oliver O. Howard You say you will not fight to free negroes. Some of them seem willing to fight for you; but, no matter. Fight you, then exclusively to save the Union. We are in civil war. In such cases there always is a main question; but in this case that question is a perplexing compound Union and Slavery. It thus becomes a question dark relic 2010 trailer of two sides merely, but of at least four sides, even among those who are for the Union, saying nothing of those who are against it. October 5, 1863 Letter to Charles Drake et al Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. It is easy to see that, under the sharp discipline of civil war, the nation is beginning a new life.
