The Gettysburg Address
Show Answers:

  1. Part 1
    Four score 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.
  2. Part 2
    Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure.
  3. Part 3
    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 that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
  4. Part 4
    But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract.
  5. Part 5
    The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.
  6. Part 6
    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.
  7. Part 7
    It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored 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 have died in vain -- 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.
