The Gettysburg AddressBy; Abraham Lincoln Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaed in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle field of that war.We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that this nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.But in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate... we cannot conscrate... we cannot hallow... this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have conscrated it far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note nor long remeber what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us, the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task reamaining before us... that from these honered dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion, that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not die in vein, that this nation, under god, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.November 19,1863
