The blog post I wrote yesterday has received a couple of comments and made me realize that I should provide a link to more information. As Chris commented, "Parts of a quote taken out of a letter cannot do justice to the great man and the struggles that he was faced with." True. Unfortunately, the Lincoln Memorial does not provide more context for its visitors (and its web site doesn't even mention the exhibit). This web page, though, provides the story for those of you who are curious.
