Question Answer
S1Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal
S2Now we are engaged in a great civil war
S3Testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated can long endure.
S4We are met on a great battlefield of that war.
S5We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting place for those who gave their lives that that nation might live
S6It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this
S7But in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground.
S8The brave men, living and dead who struggled here have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract
S9 The world will little note nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forgot what they did here
S10It 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.
S11It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us
S12that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion
S13That 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 the earth
