Can anyone provide me the exact quote from Lincoln that is inscribed on the Kentucky Vicksburg Monument? I am 99% it is from the Second Inaugural Address, but do not have the exact wording.

Details and Clarification please.

Are you talking about the KY monument at Vicksburg NMP?

Well, there are 3 of those, too :wink:

Here is the big one, with both Lincoln and Davis, and if you click in the photo to make bigger, you can read pretty much everything on it. No Lincoln quotes:
