That which makes a good Constitution must keep it, viz.: men of wisdom and virtue;
qualities that, because they descend not with worldly inheritance, must be carefully
propagated by a virtuous education of youth.—WM. PENN.




Abraham Lincoln's Address at Gettysburg.

OURSCORE 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. We are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation or any nation-so conceived and so dedicatedcan long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that. We are met to dedicate a portion of that field as the final resting-place of those who here gave their lives that that 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 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 have thus far so nobly carried on. It is rather for us to be here 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 devotion; that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain; that this nation. shall, under God, have a new birth of freedom; and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
