Lincoln, was he not really a national hero?

Lincoln, was he not really a national hero?

Well, I have to agree that Lincoln was very unpopular during his term in office. He found himself in the position of being too much of an abolitionist for some of the people, and not enough of an abolitionist for others.

The motivation for issuing the Emancipation Proclamation was partially to give Britain and France a reason to not recognize the Confederacy. In the earlier days of the war, the economic motivation was seen as the inducement for Britain to give aid to the confederacy.

Lincoln, on the other hand, had always opposed slavery. In the issue of the Compromise of 1850, Lincoln is quoted as having said he must have voted for the abolition of the slave trade in the District of Columbia at least 40 times. Lincoln had only two years service at the national level before he became President, and aside from the firm stand he took on the War with Mexico, he didn't show a great deal in other areas.

As to big government, the government did grow during the war, but it had a cause. The tradition in the USA had always been a small standing army. With the expansion of the US Army in the war years, the government had to expand with it. It was largely the War Department, however, and the size of the army was reduced again, so the need in 1898 for the militia to be called up was still imperative.

I don't think Mr. Bush will be called a hero in ages to come, and the only shining light in his administration will probably be the first few days after September 11, 2001. However, we have had 43 presidents and how many of them are on Mt. Rushmore?

help e with english "for the day"?

help e with english "for the day"?

Another good catch! Excellent close readings of the nuances of the language.

"For the day" could indeed have both of the implications you suggest, and a third variation as well:

> At 10am, high winds knocked over the transmitting tower, so the TV station stopped broadcasting for the day.

(for the rest of the normally-scheduled broadcasting time; it stopped early)

> When the TV station quits broadcasting for the day, it plays the National Anthem.

(at the end of its regularly-scheduled hours of operation)

> On Wednesday, an overnight power outage prevented the radio station from broadcasting for the day.

(during an entire day)

>Jeffry and his kids like to go out to Logan Airport for the day to watch the big jets take off and land.

(They "make a day of it" -- another expression meaning that they spend the whole day doing this. The sentence suggests that they eat lunch there, and are away for (at least) most of the daylight hours.)

> At 11:30am, the blizzard closed Logan Airport for the day.

(for the balance of the day; until tomorrow morning; for the rest of the day)

> The blizzard closed Logan Airport for the day.

(This could mean that it was closed for a 24-hour period, or that it never started up that morning. But it could also mean that the airport gave up trying at, say for example, 3pm, and canceled the rest of the flights scheduled for that day.

In either case, it implies that things were back to normal "tomorrow" or "in the morning" or "the very next day.")

> The airplane mechanic put away his tools for the day.

(at the end of his work shift)

I guess there are three possible implications of "for the day"

1) During an entire day; for a whole day

> We went to the airport for the day.

> He was out of his office for the day.

2) For the balance of the day; for the rest of the day

> At 11am, The airport closed for the day.

> After lunch, he was out of the office for the day.

3) At the end of the working hours

> At midnight, the airport shuts down for the day.

> He closed up his office for the day.

~~~~~~~

In these examples, the words in parentheses ("entire" and "the rest of") could be added for clarity, but they are hardly necessary. I believe no editor would either delete or add them.

> On Wednesday, Melissa auditioned for "Annie" in New York City, so she was not in school for the (entire) day.

(She missed one complete day of school.)

> Melissa fell down in the playground, so she stayed in the Nurse's Office for (the rest of) the day.

(She spent what remained of the day with the nurse.)

> Melissa's nanny picks her up when school lets out for the day.

(at the end of the school's hours of operation)

> After finishing his masterpiece, the artist went to sleep for (the rest of) the day.

> The artist was at his showing at the Arnold Galleries for the (entire) day.

> The artist put away his brushes and paints for the day (at the end of the day).

Other periods of time take the same expression:

> We'll be out of town for the summer.

(for the whole summer)

> After the Charity Ball, we'll be away for the summer.

(for the rest of the summer)

> They closed up the cabin for the summer.

(In September, at the end of the summer. Notice you could say "for the winter" too.)

> The office is closed for the week.

(for the entire week - or - for the balance of the week)

> The news anchor gave his last report for the week.

(On Friday at 5pm, at the end of his week's work)

> Let's go out for the night.

(spend 7:30pm - 11:30pm together; get dinner and a movie)

> He put the cat out for the night.

(at 11pm, for the whole night; until morning)

> The shopkeeper locked up for the night. (or "for the day")

(at 6pm, at the end of the business day)
