    Colbert does an interesting reading of the famous speech; I still prefer Raymond Massey’s take on it however. I just picked up something, however; was it Lincoln who coined the term “Civil War” for this conflict in this speech? I know both sides used a number of epithets to describe the conflict: War of the Rebellion, War for Southern Independence, War of Secession, etc. Anyone know?
