SING a SONG

‘Lincoln the Hope of the Nation’

By Eustis Smith on September 25th, 1864

Good news for rabble-rousers:

New song sheets are in!

Head over to the store to buy the latest hymns to our great president!

Hear, hear!

Sherman in Atlanta

By Edwin Stanton, Secretary of War on September 2nd, 1864

Folks:

Yesterday General Sherman took Atlanta.

That means we’re just one step closer to ending this wicked war and rebuilding our great nation.

Still, we’ve got a lot of work to do and not a day goes by where I don’t see the toll this conflict takes on our president.

I know he’ll be there for us even in the darkest of hours.

Will you be there for him?

 

Homecoming

By Archibald Chauncey on July 20th, 1864


President Lincoln was warmly received upon returning to his home in Springfield.

After visiting with his family for several hours, the President made an appearance before the spirited gathers on his yard.

His brief remarks were met with elation at the hope for a healed Union.

“Hoo-ray for the Union! Hoo-ray for honest Abe!” the revelers cried.

1864

By Phineas Decatur on June 24th, 1864

It’s going to be a good year.

One for the history books.

Can the president count on your support?

‘Not unworthy’

By Abraham Lincoln on June 9th, 1864

Hey.

Just thought I’d share with you my nomination acceptance letter.

Gentlemen of the Committee.

I will neither conceal my gratification, nor restrain the expression of my gratitude, that the Union people, through their Convention, in their continued effort to save, and advance the nation, have deemed me not unworthy to remain in my present position.

I know no reason to doubt that I shall accept the nomination tendered; and yet perhaps I should not declare definitely before reading and considering what is called the Platform.

I will say now, however, I approve the declaration in favor of so amending the Constitution as to prohibit slavery throughout the nation. When the people in revolt, with a hundred days of explicit notice, that they could, within those days, resume their allegiance, without the overthrow of their institution, and that they could not so resume it afterwards, elected to stand out, such amendment of the Constitution as now proposed, became a fitting, and necessary conclusion to the final success of the Union cause. Such alone can meet and cover all cavils. Now, the unconditional Union men, North and South, perceive its importance, and embrace it. In the joint name of Liberty and Union, let us labor to give it legal form, and practical effect.

I’m looking forward to hitting the campaign trail with you all again.
