Both parties deprecated war; but one of them would make war
rather than let the nation survive; and the other would accept
war rather than let it perish. And the war came .... Fondly do
we hope -- fervently do we pray -- that this mighty scourge
of war may speedily pass away.

(Second Inaugural Address, March 4, 1865)
