    Someone dies fighting for this country, we owe them a debt of gratitude. When Lincoln spoke of the "last full measure of devotion" he didn't caveat it with words about volunteers.

    You, sir or madam, are a complete idiot.

    •  Robert Lincoln (0+ / 0-)

      Abraham Lincoln was an exceptionally skilled politician and writer of memorable speeches.

      During the war he kept is son Robert out of the worst of the war by sending him to Harvard. At the tail end of the war, he had his son assigned to a staff job on HQ staff to insure that he would not be killed.

      And I am sorry for insulting you earlier.
