Abraham Lincoln, our 16th President, and our greatest, died today at 7:22 a.m in 1865.
Secretary Of War Edwin Stanton
State William H. Seward was reported to have said
"Now he belongs to the ages."
Of all the wonderful things Lincoln said, perhaps this short sentence carries the most meaning after the last four years we have been through:
“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”
