The 'Gettysburg Address' was delivered by President Abraham Lincoln at the dedication of the battlefield of Gettysburg as a soldiers' cemetery on Nov. 19, 1863.
Although at the time, it was not particularly lauded as an oration of any real significance, years later and today, it is recognized as a classic model of noble oratory, and also as one of the most moving expressions of the democratic spirit ever uttered:
"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. ~
Now we are engaged in a great civil war; testing whether that nation, or any other nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure.
We are met on a great battlefield of that war. ~
We have come here 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. ~
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. The world will little note, nor long remember 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 remaining before us ~ that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause to 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, and for the people, shall not perish from the Earth."
I Peter 3:13
