Abe Lincoln’s Warning

Iconic black and white photograph of Lincoln showing his head and shoulders.

“As a result of the war, corporations have been enthroned and an era of
corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the
country will endeavour to prolong its reign by working upon the
prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands
and the Republic is destroyed. I feel at this moment more anxiety than
ever before, even in the midst of war. God grant that my suspicions may
prove groundless.”
– Abraham Lincoln
