“Speak when you are angry and you will make the best speech you will ever regret.” – Ambrose Bierce

From “Lincoln 365,” by Arnold Kunst
March 6
This was truly a war of brother against brother as exemplified by the roll call of Mary Todd Lincoln's family of Lexington [Kentucky was a border state]. Her eldest brother Levi and her half-sister Margaret Kellogg were for the Union, while her youngest brother George and her three half-brothers had joined the Confederate Army, and her three half-sisters were the wives of Confederate officers.

‘You have made us for Yourself alone, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in You.'
- Augustine of Hippo
