The United States are…. The United States is….

I was recently told that before the Civil War Americans spoke of the United States in the plural, “the United States are”, then after the Civil War, it became mentioned in the singular, “the United States is…”

I was also told that what changed was Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address.

Give that some thought.
