Stran 25 - And upon this act, sincerely believed to be an act of justice warranted by the Constitution upon military necessity, I invoke the considerate judgment of mankind and the gracious favor of Almighty God.
Stran 23 - But each State having expressly parted with so many powers as to constitute jointly with the other States a single nation, cannot from that period possess any right to secede, because such secession does not break a league, but destroys the unity of a nation...
Stran 18 - Bestowing thus their lives on the public, they have every one received a praise that will never decay,' a sepulchre that will always be most illustrious ; not that in which their bones lie mouldering, but that in which their fame is preserved, to be on every occasion, when honor is the employ of either word or act, eternally remembered.
Stran 13 - This terrible spectacle did not appear to produce any emotion upon the vast crowd, and the scene closed with barbaric music and firing of guns. It was a sight never to be forgotten by those who witnessed it...
Stran 44 - Like a lone lily that perfumes the mart, Lifting its coronal beauty on high. Sons of Rhode Island, your record shall stand Graven on tablets of granite and bronze ; Soldiers and sailors, beloved of our land, Darlings and heroes, our brothers and sons, — Gray-bearded heroes and beautiful sons !

Stran 35 - We, the people of these United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquillity, provide for the common defence, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
Stran 23 - The Constitution of the United States . . . forms a government, not a league; and whether it be formed by compact between the States or in any other manner, its character is the same.
Stran 40 - To have died for liberty, to have saved the Republic, by our blood, to have put our lives in the breach, and thus to have closed the broken wall, that it might stand forever — this has been our privilege. We have given you a country which you will ever be proud to call your own. We have established in the western world an empire where a true freedom may abide in undisturbed possession, and peace may reign for the lasting welfare of mankind. We are content. It is for you to maintain inviolate the...
