The Nation

February 13, 1986

Abraham Lincoln's dream of equality and opportunity remains "an illusion" for 33 million poor Americans, New York Gov. Mario M. Cuomo said. "In his time, Lincoln saw that, as long as one in every seven Americans was enslaved, our identity as a people was hostage to that enslavement," the New York Democrat said in a speech in Springfield, Ill., at the annual Abraham Lincoln Assn. dinner in honor of the 16th President's birthday.
