"The excessive weight of this man
in human destiny disturbed the equil
ibrium. This individual counted of
himself alone more than the universe
besides. These plethoras of all hu
man vitality concentrated in a single
head, the world mounting to the brain
of one man would be fatal to civiliza
tion if they should endure. The mo
ment had come for incorruptable su
preme equity to look to it. Probably
the principles and elements upon
which regular gravitations in the
moral order as well as in the mater
ial depend, began to murmur. Reek
ing blood, overcrowded cemeteries,

able pleaders. When the earth is suf

mysterious meanings from the deeps

"Napoleon had been impeached be

"Waterloo is not. a battle; it is the
change of front of the universe."
And so at the battle of Waterloo,
Napolcuti on the one side in opposi

equity must go down before the great
ethical law, which destroyed him be
cause by his ambition and his power
he was disturbing the equilibrium of
the moral world. Napoleon and the
despotic empire were crushed to liber
alize monarchy and to establish con
stitutional order through the counter
revolution which followed Waterloo.
Just' such a crisis forty-four years
ago came into the life of tkis nation
upon this field, and it was just as in
evitable and necessary as Waterloo.
Our forefathers had set forth in the
Declaration of Independence in 1776
All men are created equal, that
they are endowed by their Crea
tor with certain inalienable rights,
that amtong these are life, liberty
and the pursuit of happiness."
Fighting for the establishment of
this princiole the Revolutionists were
successful and the nation was born.
In 1787, forgetting this principle of
universal liberty, the founders and
the people of this nation, while they
declared in the Preamble to their Con
stitution that their purpose was to
secure the "blessings of liberty to our
selves and our posterity." recognized

forces of disunion for almost two

were endeavoring to save the nation
and at the same time save the favor

rebellion against the nation, God so
prevented the triumph of the Union
arms that the cause of the Union was
well nigh lost.
Man in his weakness thought that
this government, founded on the
eternal principle of freeedom to all,
could exist half free and half slave.
But the Almighty, guiding the des
tinies of the nation, frustrated the
weak plans of man, and as the God of
battles brought those entrusted with
the nation's life to see that the nation
could only survive wholly free. And
so Abraham Lincoln, realizing that
the time had come to bow to the Su
preme will to that Divine power
which had been so ordering the af
fairs of this nation that the crisis must
come, issued the Emancipation Proc
lamation, declaring that all should be

Today we survey this field and see
with clarfied vision all that its traged
ies meant. We see the Union saved,
the nation established upon the im
movable rock of freedom.
Splendid and terrible were the con
comitants of the mighty struggle.
They were fit accessories to the stu
pendous issues involved.
It may seem at times that the over
throw of some particularly vicious
manifestation of evil threatening the
national life marks the ultimate vic
tory. This is not true. The conflict never
ends. It is going on now. We are
in the ranks and shadowy hosts and
forces are contending all about us.
On one side or the other of these
bloodless battles all of us must be.
We are either supinely submitting to,
or courageously combatting, insid
ious assults upon our national life.
Armageddon is a present fight which
will be waged until the end of this
world and then will culminate. Ath
ens and Greece won the glories of
Salamis and Marathon and perished
miserably and enslaved because Hel
lenism no longer meant vigilance, pa
triotism and righteousness.
It may be said with truth that for
a nation the dangers of peace may be
worse than the dangers of war and
this is peculiarly true of our nation.
Our governmental system has
secured certain advantages which
could not have been obtained with
out making it complex, and for that
reason more liable to become disar
ranged than are simple democracies
and simple monarchies or autocracies.
If we are to retain these advantages
and prevent dangerous disarrange
ments of our plan we must jealously
guard its distinctive characteristics
against the natural tendency towards
their elimination and a reversion to
the rejected but simpler types. The
simplest form of government is ab
solute autocracy and it is the worst.
All power is centered in one man, his
will is the supreme law, he rules with
Our governmental plan was con
structed so as to resemble in a way
the solar system where the finger of
God spins the planets in perpetual
harmony; but our system is the work
of human wisdom and must depend
upon human wisdom for its success.
Recently this tendency seems to me
to have threatened seriously to dis
turb the just relations between the
State and Federal governments. Im
patient of the difficulties and delays
which must attend the action of sep
arate States in the accomplishment
of their objects, some of the people
have seemed to feel that by an as
sumption of Federal power, or by
ignoring State power, their aims
could be speedily and fully obtained.
But the genius of our Constitution,
the supreme equity of our form of
government, the balance wheel of our
system is that each of the dual gov
ernments shall keep within its own
sphere, untrammeled and uncontrol
led by the other.
Let us guard against dangerous
encroachment upon this system; let
us stand courageously, persistently
and eternally by our ancient rights.
In this way shall we show our grat
itude to those who perished here and
preserve the principles for which they
If this Union is to survive it must
be maintained as constituted or as
modified in the way provided by those
who constituted it.
If it is to survive it is necessary
now and always, that wisdom, vigil
ance and courage should abide in the
halls of legislation, the chambers of
judicial decision, the centers of execu
tive power and with the dominating
mass of the people as that sons of the
Union should have bathed with their
blood these fertile fields.
The strength and power of this
Nation does not rest upon the fact
that it is a federation of States, but
that it is a Union of States, based up
on a Constitution formulated by the
people, adopted by the people, de
fended and preserved here by the peo
ple. No object is so important that
we should sacrifice the very nature
and glory of our systems to accom
It cost us nearly a million lives,
untold millions of treasure and un
speakable anguish, to prevent the
States from destroying the Unios
created by the Constitution.
This Government is not seriously
threatend by anarchy, which is the
cause espoused by the wicked, malic
ious and envious and by ignorance
and perverted degeneracy.
The highest and most patriotic am
bition you and I can entertain is t
seek to understand the fundamental
principles in American National life
and understanding them to defend
and protect them. Defend them
alike against those who would nar
rowly restrict them and those who
would destructively expand them.
The individual skirmisher out alone
the far-flung Union line beyond this
crest served the cause as well as the
commander of crops orarrriy directing
aggregate movements from head
quarters. And often the private sol- ,
dier has saved the day and retrieved
a disaster due to a commander's folly
or perversity, dying an inconspicuous
hero. In that spirit of vigilance and
devotion, let us serve in this army of
the Union, which is always in the
field. We may not be able to make
our service conspicuous, we can cer
tainly make it useful.
