Abraham Lincoln

Gettysburg Address

Description

At Gettysburg, the famous Civil War battleground, Abraham Lincoln said: “The world will little note, nor long remember, what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.” This is something of an ironic statement, given that everyone remembers the famous line “Four score and seven years ago,” but many don’t remember what the Gettysburg Address is actually about. It’s three paragraphs long, so do your civic duty and read it again.
