Abraham Lincoln 1864 "Corporation" Warning

william-michael
"I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and cause me to tremble for safety of my country; corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption in High Places will follow, and the Money Power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the People, until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands, and the Republic destroyed."

~ABRAHAM LINCOLN, letter to Col. William F. Elkins, Nov. 21, 1864
