Excerpt from Abraham Lincoln: Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy, of the United States; Annual Oration Delivered Before the Society of the Army of the Potomac, at Pittsburg October 11 1899
And surely he deserves well of The Union League, as in his early life he exemplified in his own person the principles on which this League is founded, love of country and aid in preserving the Union of the United States. Surely the man who offered himself for the cause, the man who enlisted as a private in 1862, served through the war with distinction and was mustered out as a Major in July, 1865, receiving a medal of honor for bravery on the field, should be and is an ideal member of this Union League, deservedly held in high esteem by his fellow members and is a bright example to the pres ent and future members of this institution.
