Remarks in Response to a Serenade

March 03, 1865

Sherman went in at Atlanta and came out right. He has gone in again at Savannah, and I propose three cheers for his coming out gloriously.

New York Tribune, March 4, 1865. Lincoln's remarks were made in response to a serenade by "a large delegation of New-Yorkers and Poughkeepsians, accompanied by Eastman's Business College band of Poughkeepsie." No more complete text of Lincoln's response has been found.
