First Line: This dust was once the man
Last Line: Was saved the union of these states.
Subject(s): Lincoln, Abraham (1809-1865); Presidents, United States


This dust was once the man,
Gentle, plain, just and resolute, under whose cautious hand,
Against the foulest crime in history known in any land or age,
Was saved the Union of these States.
