Did Abraham Lincoln Ever Say “Bill of Rights?”
For those of you who are Lincoln scholars, I have a question. Did Lincoln ever refer to the first ten constitutional amendments as the Bill of Rights? I know that he did not do so as President, as I’ve checked, but what about before that? (In the Lincoln/Douglas debates, private letters, his one term in Congress, etc.) I think we are near the point where all of Lincoln’s known writings are scanned and searchable, but I’m not sure if that is foolproof.
