Al,

This is a very good paper. As always with you a very creative use of sources. I've heard a lot about Lincoln's address and some about Everett's and Story's, but nothing about the others. Some are deservedly obscure, but collectively you use them to tell a compelling story and to reach well beyond the cemetery setting. Cemeteries and constitutionalism. Who knew?

You focus a lot on Whig thought here. Why? Did Whigs really think differently about the Union from Democrats?
