This nation has had many men whose ded have emblazoned the pages of history, but no name Is now dearer in- Lie hearts of the people than that of Abraham IJncoln. Washington fought to give u! this nation; guaranteeing rights to the citizen, never obtained nor ex ercised by any other teople; Un coil struggled to keep it as a gov ernment of the people, for the peo ple and by the people. Jeffe-s-n t.iucht the simple truths necessary for tbe happiness of a democratic people; Lincoln applied thee truth to the troubles of his time mI steered the ship of state intT a peaceful harbor. Jaekson thundered aeainst and overcame the evi! of his day; Lfn-oln with a heart ready for any fate, breathed a new frrre into the doctrines of Jackson. We preserve,!
