The Sorrow of a Nation

Excerpt from The Sorrow of a Nation: A Sermon Preached in the College Chapel at Princeton, N. J., Sunday, September 25, 1881 There are two days in the calendar of our American history so darkened by portentous crime, so clouded with mighty sorrow, so fateful to the national welfare, that they can never be recalled without bitter pangs and shudders of dread. One of them is that 14th day of April 1865, when amid the exulting joys over the ultimate triumph of the national arms, President Lincoln fell by the hands of a malignant and cruel assassin. Some of us can recall that woful morning after the terrible deed, when, mute with horror we felt that the last and dreadfullest vial of anguish had been poured out on the suffering country. The other is the 2d of July, 1881, a day still fresh in all memories for its awful shock, when for the second time the bullet of an assassin sped its fatal course, and President Garfield was its shining mark and victim. But when Lincoln was assassinated, the country was familiar with sorrow. The long agony of war had convulsed countless households. The mourners over their dead fallen on fields of honor had gone about our streets. Not even final victory could efface from the hearts of men, the aching sense of loss. It was the final and greatest anguish, but it was one of a long and dark line of woes. How differently came this last fearful blow! The wounds of our civil war were fast healing.
