  • Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth upon 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 nation so conceived

  • and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We

  • have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who died

  • here that the nation might live. This we may, in all propriety, do. 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 hallowed it far above our poor power to add

  • or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, while it can

  • never forget what they did here. It is rather for us, the living, we here be dedicated to

  • the great task remaining before us. That from these honored dead we take increased devotion

  • to that cause for which they here gave the last full measure of devotionthat we here

  • highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain. That the nation 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.
