Yes, it was a great speech, and even greater for two other reasons.
1: Lincoln did it without
a teleprompter, and
2: If you liked your doctor back then , you could keep
him (well you pretty much had to because he was the only one in town, lol)
That aside, Lincoln also that that "Everything I am, or hope to be, I can attribute to my mother
." I believe
that he said that, more or less with a few words possibly missing.
More words to live by. Ya' gotta' love mom! Long live Lincoln!
