"When you got below Vicksburg and took Port Gibson, Grand Gulf, and vicinity, I thought you should down the river and join General Banks; and when you turned northward east of the Big Black I feared it was a mistake. I now wish to make the personal acknowledgment that you were right, and I was wrong."

Letter to General Grant after capture of Vicksburg.

"They [the founding fathers] did not mean to assert the obvious untruth, that all men were then actually enjoying that equality, nor yet that they were about to confer it, immediately, upon them. In fact, they had no power to confer such a boon. They meant simply to declare the right, so that the enforcement might follow as fast as circumstances should permit."

Abraham Lincoln, 1838
