The wall of speech
Pictures!
Abraham Lincoln, Springfield, Illinois, June 16, 1858
A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure permanently half-slave and half-free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved—I do not expect the house to fall—but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing or all the other.

Can you explain...
~Thoughts~
Both men have very strong opinions, but i feel that Abraham Lincoln was right and that there shouldn't be was!
Stephen A. Douglas, Springfield, Illinois, June 17, 1858
"I believe that the Union can only be preserved by maintaining inviolate the Constitution of the United States as our fathers have made it. That Constitution guarantees to the people of every State the right to have slavery or not have it…each State being left free to decide for itself. The framers of that Constitution…well understood that each one of the thirteen States had distinct and separate interests, and required distinct and separate local laws and local institutions."
