Born: February 12, 1809
Died: too soon.
The challenge at the end of book I read on the Civil War said that we should speak back the words of Lincoln if we have benefited from freedom and opportunity. I made note of the idea but didn’t make note which book it was from, so cannot give proper credit. And I’m too lazy to browse the last chapter of the last half dozen Civil War books on my Kindle.
I have benefited from both the freedom and unlimited opportunity of America and have barely begun to speak back what Abraham Lincoln told us. Consider this an infinitesimal portion of my first payment.
