This public address, given well before his presidency, was to the Springfield Washington Temperance Society. Although it did take a stance for temperance, it stirred the waters quite significantly for its time – mainly because it criticized the ways in which temperance was handled. Rather than treating alcoholism with kindness, as Lincoln advocated, he saw the temperance society handling it combatively. However, his final lines of hope carried many over into his message of mind over matter.

Author Bio: Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865) was the sixteenth president of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. He led the US through its greatest constitutional, military, and moral crises—the American Civil War—preserving the Union, abolishing slavery, strengthening the national government, and modernizing the economy. Reared in a poor family in rural Indiana, he was a self-educated man. In the 1830s he became a country lawyer, a Whig Party leader, and Illinois state legislator. He later served as a one-term member of the House of Representatives during the 1840s.
