"We are sometimes asked in the name of partiotism to forget the merits of this fearful struggle, and to remember with equal admiration those who struck at the nation's life, and those who struck to save it-those who fought for slavery and those who fought for liberty and justice. I am no minister of malice..., I would not repel the repentant, but...
may my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth if I forget the difference between the parties to that...bloody conflict."
Never see this quote before, don't normally cruise politically oriented threads, but this caught my attention and captured my basic feeling about this war very concisely, 100+ years before I thought it.
