Notes.

Note from page 419: 1. A quarter-section is 160 acres; a township is 36 sections, or 23,040 acres.

Note from page 420: 2. AL's phraseology is not identical but apparently owes much to Parker's. See Garry Wills, Lincoln at Gettysburg: The Words That Remade America (New York, 1992), 107, 281n.
