Lincoln's Vision for America D URING Lincoln's birth month we may well recall his remarkable "Vision for America," contained in his thoughtful conclusions on the Revolu tionary War and the founding of the United States. He said: "There must have been something more than common that these men struggled for. I am exceedingly anxious that that thing-that something even more than national independence; that something that held out a great promise to all the people of the world to all time to come I am exceedingly anxious that this Union, the Constitution, and the liberties of the people shall be perpetuated in accordance with the original idea for which that struggle was made."* All the free peoples of the world again pay homage to the virtues of Abraham Lincoln and give heartfelt heed to his good counsel. *From Address at Trenton, New Jersey, February SI,1861.
