Joshua Chamberlain
Gettysburg, 2 July, 1863


~ Yearlong Tribute To Our President ~



~My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that. What I do about slavery, and the colored race. I do because I believe it helps to save the Union; and what I forbear, I forbear because I do not believe it helps to save the Union. I shall do less whenever I shall believe what I am doing hurts the cause, and I shall do more whenever I shall believe doing more will help the cause.”

A. Lincoln, 1862
