Abraham Lincoln : It was right after the revolution, right after peace had been concluded. And Ethan Allen went to London to help our new country conduct its business with the king. The English sneered at how rough we are and rude and simple-minded and on like that, everywhere he went. Dinner was served, beverages imbibed, time passed as happens and Mr.

Allen found he needed the privy. He was grateful to be directed to this. Relieved, you might say. Allen discovered on entering the water closet that the only decoration therein was a portrait of George Washington.

Ethan Allen done what he came to do and returned to the drawing room. His host and the others were disappointed when he didn't mention Washington's portrait. And finally his lordship couldn't resist and asked Mr. Allen had he noticed it, the picture of Washington.

He said he had.

Well, what did he think of its placement? Did it seem appropriately located to Mr. And Mr. Allen said it did. The host was astounded. Abraham Lincoln : "Appropriate? George Washington's likeness in a water closet? Abraham Lincoln : "Yes," said Mr. Allen, "where it will do good service.

The world knows nothing will make an Englishman shit quicker than the sight of George Washington. Abraham Lincoln : I love that story. Abraham Lincoln : I could write shorter sermons but when I get started I'm too lazy to stop. They said she murdered her husband, he was He was choking her and she grabbed a-hold of a stick of firewood and fractured his skull and he died. In his will he wrote: 'I suspect she has killed me. If I get over it, I will have revenge. I asked the prosecuting attorney if I might have a short conference with my client. And she and I went into a room in the courthouse, but I alone emerged.

The window in the room was found to be wide open. It was believed the old lady may have climbed out of it. I told the bailiff right before. I left her in the room she asked me where she could get a good drink of water, and I told her Tennessee. Goings was seen no more in Metamora. Enough justice had been done; they even forgave the bondsman her bail. John Usher : I'm afraid I don't see Abraham Lincoln : I decided that the Constitution gives me war powers, but no one knows just exactly what those powers are.

Some say they don't exist. I don't know. I decided I needed them to exist to uphold my oath to protect the Constitution, which I decided meant that I could take the rebel's slaves from them as property confiscated in war. That might recommend to suspicion that I agree with the rebs that their slaves are property in the first place. Of course I don't, never have, I'm glad to see any man free, and if calling a man property, or war contraband, does the trick Why I caught at the opportunity.

Now here's where it gets truly slippery. I use the law allowing for the seizure of property in a war knowing it applies only to the property of governments and citizens of belligerent nations. But the South ain't a nation, that's why I can't negotiate with'em. If in fact the Negroes are property according to law, have I the right to take the rebels' property from 'em, if I insist they're rebels only, and not citizens of a belligerent country? And slipperier still: I maintain it ain't our actual Southern states in rebellion but only the rebels living in those states, the laws of which states remain in force.

The laws of which states remain in force. That means, that since it's states' laws that determine whether Negroes can be sold as slaves, as property - the Federal government doesn't have a say in that, least not yet then Negroes in those states are slaves, hence property, hence my war powers allow me to confiscate'em as such.

So I confiscated 'em. But if I'm a respecter of states' laws, how then can I legally free'em with my Proclamation, as I done, unless I'm cancelling states' laws? I felt the war demanded it; my oath demanded it; I felt right with myself; and I hoped it was legal to do it, I'm hoping still. Two years ago I proclaimed these people emancipated - "then, hence forward and forever free. They might well decide that. Say there's no amendment abolishing slavery. Say it's after the war, and I can no longer use my war powers to just ignore the courts' decisions, like I sometimes felt I had to do.

Might those people I freed be ordered back into slavery? That's why I'd like to get the Thirteenth Amendment through the House, and on its way to ratification by the states, wrap the whole slavery thing up, forever and aye. As soon as I'm able. End of this month. And I'd like you to stand behind me. Like my cabinet's most always done. Abraham Lincoln : Euclid's first common notion is this: Things which are equal to the same things are equal to each other.

That's a rule of mathematical reasoning and its true because it works - has done and always will do. In his book Euclid says this is self evident.

You see there it is even in that year old book of mechanical law it is the self evident truth that things which are equal to the same things are equal to each other. Abraham Lincoln : [pounds his hand on a table as his cabinet squabbles] I can't listen to this anymore. I can't accomplish a goddamn thing of any worth until we cure ourselves of slavery and end this pestilential war! I wonder if any of you or anyone else knows it. I know! I need this! This amendment is that cure! We've stepped out upon the world stage now. With the fate of human dignity in our hands.

Blood's been spilled to afford us this moment now! And you grouse so and heckle and dodge about like pettifogging Tammany Hall hucksters! Thaddeus Stevens : The people elected me to represent them, to lead them, and I lead. You ought to try it. Abraham Lincoln : I admire your zeal, Mr. Stevens, and I have tried to profit from the example of it. But if I'd listened to you, I'd have declared every slave free the minute the first shell struck Fort Sumter.

Then the border states would've gone over to the Confederacy, the war would've been lost and the Union along with it, and instead of abolishing slavery, as we hope to do in two weeks, we'd be watching helpless as infants as it spread from the American South into South America. Thaddeus Stevens : Oh, how you have longed to say that to me.

You claim you trust them, but you know what the people are. You know that the inner compass that should direct the soul toward justice has ossified in white men and women, North and South, unto utter uselessness through tolerating the evil of slavery. White people cannot bear the thought of sharing this country's infinite abundance with Negroes. Abraham Lincoln : A compass, I learned when I was surveying, it'll If in pursuit of your destination, you plunge ahead heedless of obstacles, and achieve nothing more than to sink in a swamp Abraham Lincoln : Do you think we choose the times into which we are born?

Or do we fit the times we are born into? Samuel Beckwith : Well, I don't know about myself. You may be. Abraham Lincoln : I must make my decision, Bob must make his, you yours. And bear what we must. Hold and carry what we must.

What I carry within me, you must allow me to do it. Alone, as I must. And you alone, Mary, you alone may lighten the burden. Or render it intolerable. As you choose. Abraham Lincoln : It's time for me to go. But I would rather stay. Abraham Lincoln : Abolishing slavery by constitutional provisions settles the fate for all coming time.

Not only of the millions now in bondage, but of unborn millions to come. Two votes stand in its way. These votes must be procured. William Seward : We need two yeses. Three abstentions. Four yeses and one more abstention and the amendment will pass.
