I have  read in several places that the Gettysburg Address was  
in the nation thinking of the Union as one United country instead  of  a 
loose collection of states.
If we ignore all the history from 1789 to 1863, including all the  free 
states sending soldiers to maintain the Union of one united country instead  of 
a loose collection of states, then perhaps.  But even then, probably  not.
