1otifTO?mTfl "seven veal's ago our fathei-s brought forth upon this continent a
new nation (oiVtuvod in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are
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 battle
field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as the final
resting place of those who here gave their lives that the nation might live. It is
altogether fitting and proper that we do this. But, in a larger sense, we cannot
dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground. The brave men
living and dead who fought 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 fro mthese 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 (!od, 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.

"wo should consecrate ourselves

Referring to the civil war Roosovelt
"That war could only have been
fought by a people showing n mixture
of llfty Idealism and sound common
souse, which Is essentlnl to a nation's
success, either In peaco or war. Tho
war could only havo been fought by a
