In honor of Kentucky’s own on President’s Day, a quote from Lincoln’s First Inaugural Address “…We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearthstone all over this broad land, yet will swell the chorus of the union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.” Post by @lincolnbirthplacenps (at Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park)
