President Lincoln was known to be a kind man. One day while staring out the window someone asked him why he was so serious. Lincoln’s reply, “today is butcher day.’ They’re going to shot a lot of boys today in the army for retreating under fire or doing something else in wartime. I don’t blame them, they weren’t cowards. Their legs did it.” With tears he said, “I’m going over the list, and I’m going to save every one that I can.”
