"Lift Your Eyes to Great Tracts
of Life Yet to Be Conquer
ed" His Message.
Gettysburg Battlefield. July 4. Pres
ident Wilson today delivered a mem
orable speech on this historic spot
The address In full follows:
Friends and Fellow Citizens I need
sot tell you what the battle of Gettys
burg meant. These gallant men In blue
and gray sit all about ns here. Many
of them met here upon this ground In
grim and deadly struggle. Upon these
famous fields and hillsides their com
rades died about them. Id their pres
ence it were an impertinence to dis
course upon how the battle went, bow
it ended, what it signified. But fifty
years hare gone by since then, and I
crave the privilege of speaking to you
for a few minutes of what those fifty
years have meant.
What have they meant? They have
meant pence and union and vigor and
the maturity and might of great na
tion. How wholesome and healing the
great stature la the view of all genera
tions by knowing no limit to their
manly willingness to serve. In armies
thus marshaled from the ranks of free
men you will see. as It were, a natioa
embattlsd. the leaders and the led.
and may know, if you will, how little
except in form Its action differs in
days of peace from Its action in days
May we break camp now and be at
ease? Are the force that fight for
the nation dispersed, disbanded, gone
to their homes, forgetful of the com
mon cause? Are our forces disorganiz
ed, without constituted leaders and the
might of men consciously united be
cause we contend not with armies, but
with principalities and powers and
wickedness in high places? Are we
content to He still? Does our union
mean sympathy, our peace content
ment, our vigor right action, our ma
turity self comprehension and a clear
confidence In choosing what we shall
do? War fitted us for action and ac
tion never ceases.
I hare been' chosen the leader of the
nation. I cannot Justify the choice by
any qualities of my own, but so it has
come about, and here I stand. Whom
do I command? The ghostly nost
who fought upon these battlefields long
ago and are gone? These gallant gen
tlemen stricken in years, whose fight
ing days are over, their glory won?
What are the orders for them, and
who rallies them? I have in my mind
another host, whom these set free of
civil strife in order that they might
work out In days of peace and settled
order the life of a great nation. That
host la the people themselves, the great
and the small, without class or differ
ence of kind or race or origin and un
divided in interest if "we have but the
vision to guide and direct them and
order their lives aright in what we do.
Our constitutions are their articles of
enlistment. The orders of the day are
the laws upon our statute books. What
we strive for is their freedom, their
rijtht to lift themselves from day to
day and behold the things they have
hoped for and so make way for still
better days for those whom they love
who are to come after them. The re
cruits are the little children crowding
in. The quartermaster's stores are in
the mines and forests and fields, in the
shops pd factories. Every day some
thing must be done to push the com-,
pnicn forward, and it must be done by
plan tind with an eye to some great
How shall we hold such thoughts in
our hearts and not be moved? I would
not have you live even today wholly in
the past, but would wish to stand with
you in the light that streams upon us
now out of that great day pone by.
Here is the nation God has builded by
our hands. What shall we do with it?
Who stands ready to act again and al
ways In the spirit 'of this day of re
union und hope and pntriotic fervor?
Tlie day of our country's life has but
lirondeneil into morning. Do not put
uniforms by. Vv.t the harness of the
present on. Lift your eyes to the groat
tracts if life jet to be conquered in
the interest of righteous peace, of that
