Abraham Lincoln's First Inaugural Address - Abraham Lincoln Book Description

Apprehension seems to exist among the people of the Southern States that by the accession of a Republican administration their property and their peace and personal security are to be endangered. There has never been any reasonable cause for such apprehension. Indeed, the most ample evidence to the contrary has all the while existed and been open to their inspection. It is found in nearly all the published speeches of him who now addresses you. I do but quote from one of those speeches when I declare that "I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the institution of slavery where it exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so. Those who nominated and elected me did so with full knowledge that I had made this and many similar declarations.

    We should not strive to be a Republican nation, nor a Democrat nation, or any party of current times. Instead, as our only goal, now and forever, to be an American Nation, United, together, in order "...to form a more perfect union..." as Americans in the United States of America.
