The Whispering Gallery

ZONE 1

WOMAN 2:
Mrs. Lincoln is padding the household bills - and she's sneaking around with the gardener, John Watt.

MAN 2:
There are no honeyed words for such a ruler as Abraham Lincoln -- a perjured traitor, betrayer of his country and butcher of hundreds of thousands of the people of the United States.

MAN 3:
Lincoln's goal is nothing less than the subjugation and destruction of the South.

MAN 1:
Lincoln may be six foot four, but he's a dwarf in mind.

MAN 2:
Right when we need a smart one, we get this apple knocker Lincoln. The man is the original Johnny Sap.

MAN 4:
Lincoln has called for five hundred thousand more victims!

MAN 3:
The women had better buy their mourning goods now - in a month there won't be enough money in the country for all that's needed.

MAN 4:
This war's gone far enough and has got to be stopped.

MAN 3:
Lincoln's war is nothing but wholesale murder!

MAN 1:
Seward!! His own Secretary of State, called Lincoln nothing but a rube country lawyer!

MAN 2:
I heard the Secretary of War, Stanton, called him "The original gorilla!”

MAN 3:
And McClellan, the head of his own Army, called Lincoln a coward and an idiot!

MAN 1:
We need another president!

WOMAN 2:
I heard that Mrs. Lincoln is ... well, she is from the South, you know ... well, she's a secessionist!

OLDER MAN:
The wickedness of the Lincoln conspiracy against the public liberty exceeds anything in history.

MAN 1:
Abraham Lincoln was born ignorant, and he's been losing ground every since.

MAN 2:
That face alone could get him hanged.

WOMAN 1:
In one month, Mrs. Lincoln overspent the money for the whole four years!!

MAN 2:
And now she's trying to save money by selling old furniture.

MAN 1:
Lincoln is not going to force me to engage in that Abolition butchery, no Sir!

MAN 3:
Mr. Lincoln staggers around like a drunken man under the intoxication of his new position.

MAN 4:
Lincoln's feeble inability to grasp the most basic circumstances of this dire emergency boggles the mind.
MAN 2:
Be careful what you say. That monster at Washington has issued another Proclamation. He says if you speak against the war or try and stop men from enlisting in the Union Army, you'll be tried by court martial, and either hung or shot!

MAN 3:
Hey ya' hear what Mary's done? Gone and put-up fancy French wallpaper in the White House while our Billy Yanks can't even get shoes!

MAN 1:
Here in Washington, Lincoln has few friends.

MAN 1:
Hey, you know what C.S.A. stands for?

MAN 2:
Confederate States of America.

MAN 1:
Can't Stand Abe!" (LAUGHTER)

MAN 1:
Abe's so ugly, 'round here, we call him 'The Illinois Ape.’

MAN 3:
Ugly you say? That hardly ... Grotesque is more like it.

MAN 2:
Newspapers called him 'half-horse, half alligator

MAN 4:
Lincoln's soul -- it's made of leather, incapable of any grand or noble emotion.

MAN 1:
Abraham Lincoln is ridiculous, vulgar, pusillanimous ... cowardly!!

WOMAN 1:
The baboon will soon find himself alone. Who would board the ship of State just as it's about to sink?
