“Abraham Lincoln and the American Union,” 2001 U. Ill. L. Rev 1109 (2001)
Here and now, let us turn our thoughts to Abraham Lincoln, to the American Union for which he lived and died, and to the vision of liberty that inspired his love of Union. To borrow a phrase from Lincoln himself, "it is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this" in this place and at this hour.
