“With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan––to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations.”

—Abraham Lincoln
Second Inaugural Address March 4, 1865
