“The fiery trial through which we pass will light us down in honor or dishonor . . . . Indeed, destiny has placed us here at one of history’s fateful moments. Our response to it will be our most important legacy. . . .I believe we all know our responsibility, and whether we like it or not, history will record whether we, each of us, meets that responsibility.”
— Abraham Lincoln, Address to Congress, 1862
