Gettysburg Address in Pictures

  1. 1. Gettysburg Address<br />In Pictures<br />
  2. 2. 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. <br />
  3. 3. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure.<br />
  4. 4. We are met on a great battlefield of that war.<br />
  5. 5. 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. <br />
  6. 6. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. <br />
  7. 7. But, in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate—we cannot consecrate—we cannot hallow—this ground. <br />
  8. 8. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract.<br />
  9. 9. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here<br />
  10. 10. 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.<br />
  11. 11. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—<br />
  12. 12. —that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—<br />
  13. 13. —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—<br />
  14. 14. — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth<br />
