What’s Up Peekskill? LinCon!

That is cool! – Abe

192632_orig

“We hear that you will not abide the election of a Republican president! In that event, you say you will destroy the Union; and then, you say, the great crime of having destroyed it will be upon us! That is cool. A highwayman holds a pistol to my ear, and mutters through his teeth, ‘Stand and deliver, or I shall kill you and then you will be a murderer!”
– Abe Lincoln, February 27, 1860
