"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 wunds; to care
for him who shall have borne the battle,
and for his widow, and his orphan...
In the pursuit of a more perfect and equal union"
March 4th, 1865

We received an email from Sheila Blackford, Librarian, Scripps Library Managing Editor, American President, Miller Center, University of Virginia, informing us that some of the information we had about the life and times of America's presidents is protected by copyright and the copyright is held by the Rector and Visitors of the University of Virginia. It would not be practical for us to go through and find the information that was a mirror of the information on their website so it is with much regret that we have removed the information we had gathered in our research of ten years ago.
