About Us

Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, given November 19, 1863on the battlefield near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, USAFour score and seven years ago, our fathers brought forthupon this continent a new nation: conceived in liberty, anddedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.Now we are engaged in a great civil war. . .testing whetherthat 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 placefor those who here gave their lives that this nation might live.It is altogether fitting and proper that we should 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 struggled here have consecrated it, far above our poor powerto 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 unfinishedwork which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced.It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remainingbefore us. . .that from these honored dead we take increased devotionto 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 God, shall have a new birth of freedom. . .and that government of the people. . .by the people. . .for the people. . .shall not perish from this earth.
