February 12, 1809

Abraham Lincoln  George P. A. Healy
From his Second Inaugural Address
by President Abraham Lincoln
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
