Abraham Lincoln was inaugurated as the sixteenth President of the United States on March 4, 1861. This tongue-in-cheek account of a "compromise tart" made by Mrs. Lincoln, with ingredients from each state, reflects the attitude of the North before the onset of the Civil War. The writer also comments that the president elect will not allow himself to be served, acts as his own valet and should be just the man needed to deal with the "aristocrats" of the South. The Gazette & Courier was the newspaper in Greenfield, Massachusetts, from July 20, 1841 until June 24, 1932. Before 1841 the newspaper's name changed quite frequently, with Gazette a frequent part of the title.
