If a house doesn't have walls then it cannot stand. DUH. The house referenced in the speech is a metaphoric house that is the United States of America. That house, the U.S., was, at the time, divided among itself about the issue of Slavery. It was proved three years later that Lincoln was exactly right. The United States of America went into war against itself about the issue of slavery, along with whether the Federal government should have more or less power, and, for the North, keeping the United States united.
