If we submit ourselves to law, even submit to losing freedoms – the freedom to oppress for example, we may discover other freedoms previously unknown to us. Had we kept faith with democratic process, as frustrating as that can be. But say all we done is show the world democracy isn’t chaos, that there is great invisible strength in a people’s union? Say we have shown that a people can endure awful sacrifice and yet cohere? Mightn’t that save at least the idea of democracy, eventually to become worthy  of at all rates, whatever may be proven by blood and sacrifice must have been proved by now.

 

Shall we stop this bleeding between government and opposition???

 

Yet if god wills that it continue until the wealth piled by bondman’s fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, so still it must be said “The judgments of the lord are true and righteous altogether”.

With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in   the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and a lasting peace among ourselves.

The Battle Of GettySburg occured over Three Hot Summer Days, July 1 To July 3 1863, around the small market town of GettySburg, Pennsylvania. It Began as a skirmish but by its end involved 160,000 americans and effectively decided the fate of the Union.

 

On November 19, 1863, President Lincoln went to the Battlefield to dedicate it as a National Cemetery. The main orator, Edward Everett of Massachusetts, delivered a Two-Hour Formal adress.  The president then had his turn. He spoke in his high, penetrating voice, and in a little over two minutes delivered this speech, surprising everyone by its brevity and leaving many quite unimpressed at first. 

 

OverTime however, this speech with its ending - government of the people, by the people - has come to symbolize the definition of Democracy itself.

 

"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 ina great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure.  We are met on  a great Battlefield of the war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

 

But ina 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 power to add or detract. The world will little note, not 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 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 form 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."
