ABRAHAM LINCOLN ~~ February 12, 1809 ~~ April 15, 1865

With malice toward none; with charity for all;
with firmness in the right,
as God gives us to see the right,
let us strive on to finish the work we are in;
to bind up the nation's wounds;
to care for him who shall have borne the battle,
and for his widow, and his orphan--
to do all which may achieve and cherish
a just and lasting peace,
among ourselves,
and with all nations.

Lincoln's Second Inaugural Address ~ March 4, 1865
