A Photo from President Lincoln's Second Inaugural Address
President Abraham Lincoln 2nd Inauguration Photo Print
President Abraham Lincoln delivers his inaugural address on the east portico of the U.S. Capitol, March 4, 1865.
President Abraham Lincoln requested our Nation to care for veterans and their families.  The American Legion has supported that request from our very beginning.   There are veterans in need and as we approach Thanksgiving and Christmas there is no better time to donate.  Operation Comfort Warriors and The American Legion Legacy Scholarship are programs that serve the purpose of the concerns of President Lincoln.  Please donate.  
With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan -- to achieve and cherish a lasting peace among ourselves and with the world. to do all which may achieve and cherish a just, and a lasting peace, among ourselves, and with the world. all nations.
Note:  $744,436 — Amount in American Legion Legacy Scholarship funds disbursed last year to the children of military personnel who had died on active duty since 9/11 or children of Post-9/11 veterans having been assigned a VA disability rating of 50 percent or greater.
