Corrected entry: Lincoln refers to himself as "the last casualty of the Civil War." Although he used the phrase "a great civil war" in the Gettysburg Address, that name for the conflict wasn't generally applied to it until much later. In 1865, Lincoln would have called it "The War Between the States."
