Lincoln's Inaugurations

All presidents give inaugural addresses. Those who are reelected will do it twice, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt did it four times. Few, however, have ever exceeded Lincoln's eloquence. More quotes can be gleaned from Lincoln's inaugural speeches than any other president. For example, can you quote anything from Millard Fillmore? How about Calvin Coolidge? Warren Harding? Probably not. Yet Lincoln's inaugural speeches produced several famous quotes. As you read them, particularly the speech from the second inaugural, there will be many phrases you will recognize.
