George W. In vain would that man claim the tribute of Patriotism who should labor to subvert these great Pillars of human happiness…. Supreme Court but its most influential member during his year tenure. It would be strange indeed, if with such a people, our institutions did not presuppose Christianity and did not often refer to it and exhibit relations with it. The less they may have of stringent State Government, the more they must have of individual self-government. The less they rely on public law or physical force, the more they must rely on private moral restraint. Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled, either by the word of God, or by the strong arm of man; either by the Bible or by the bayonet.
It is the story of a humble birth in a quiet town, and the story of one life that changed millions more. For two millennia, the story of Christmas has brought joy to families, comfort to communities, and hope to hearts around the world. During Christmas we celebrate the blessings of the season, and the blessings that surround us every day. Without this there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty, and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments… But the religion I mean to recommend in this place is that of the New Testament.
Its doctrines and precepts are calculated to promote the happiness of society and the safety and well-being of civil government. In battle and in the face of danger and death, he discloses those divine attributes which his Maker gave when he created man in his own image.

The Almighty has His own purposes. Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?

Opening a session of the 80th Congress, July 3, , Rev. To the extent that America honors Thee, wilt Thou bless America, and keep her true as Thou hast kept her free, and make her good as Thou hast made her rich. Douglas had a majority of eight on joint ballot in the Legislature, and he was reelected to the Senate. Again returned to his profession, our champion cherished the Declaration. To the Republicans of Boston, who had invited him to unite with them in celebrating the birthday of Thomas Jefferson, he sent an answer, under date of April 6, , which is a gem in political literature, and here also he asserts the supremacy of those truths for which he had battled so well.
In him the West spoke to the East, pleading for Human Rights, as declared by our fathers. The principles of Jefferson are the definitions and axioms of free society and yet they are denied and evaded with no small show of success. They would delight a convocation of crowned heads plotting against the people. They are the van-guard, the miners and sappers, of returning despotism.

The Unity of the Republic was menaced: he was from that vast controlling Northwest which would never renounce its communications with the sea, whether by the Mississippi or by eastern avenues. The birthday Declaration of the Republic was dishonored in the denial of its primal truths: he was already known as a volunteer in its defence. Republican institutions were in jeopardy: he was the child of humble life, through whom republican institutions would stand confessed. These things, so obvious now in the light of history, were less apparent then in the turmoil of party.
But that Providence in whose hands are the destinies of nations, which had found out Washington to conduct his country through the War of Independence, now found out Lincoln to wage the new battle for the Unity of the Republic on the foundation of Human Rights. The election took place.
