President Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address in Honor of President's Day

Gettysburg, PA...While it was delivered 5 years before our country officially started celebrated Decoration Day which became Memorial Day. The Gettysburg Address remains one of the most eloquent of tributes to those who gave their all that we might be free.




The "Bliss Copy" of his address





"Four 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.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for 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 can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor 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 who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. 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 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 the earth."

I PREDICT...

I predict that, in time, President Donald J. Trump will be convicted of espionage and executed because of his collusion with the Russians. Time is his enemy... Of course, he is old and could die of natural causes first, but his denial of Russian election influence is tantamount to pleading his own guilt. Trump will be the 21st C. Rosenbergs...

I always wondered what Lincoln's voice was like. This is great.

Just kidding. Wonderful speech, whoever voiced it.

      We all could only wish a leader like this was president. Not a bought out by a woman, man, gender fluid? that believe in making this once beautiful place and not making people enemies. A homeland we all could live as one and enjoy. No greed and hateful thoughts. We have a what have you done for me lately outlook. Again most want to think about the pad my pocket, not the folks that come before and after. No vision just dirty greed. The people in government today could really careless about this dirt patch unless that green stuff that really matters is under the growing nose.

        "not making people enemies."???!!
        WHAT!?!?!?!? Are you oblivious to history?

        Lincoln divided this nation into two warring factions of US citizens shooting each other. Brother fighting brother and cousin killing cousin. Hundreds of thousands of citizens died in the Civil War.
        Obama is the only other US president to so divide this nation.
