U.S. HISTORY I "Get the books, and read and study them. Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed, is more important than any other thing." - Abraham Lincoln
"'Let reverence for the laws, be breathed by every American mother,'" taught in every school, preached in every pulpit. The great bulwark against a potential dictator is an informed people 'attached to the government and laws.' Lincoln concluded, it was up to this generation to preserve this 'proud fabric of freedom.'" Doris Kearns Goodwin, Leadership In Turbulent Times (New York: Simon & Schuster, 2018), 19.
