The Civil War
  • Not long ago, a great war was waged in our
    nation, the United States. Your great-great
    grandfather might have been a soldier in this
    war. Your great-great grandmother might have
    plowed fields while her husband fought, or served
    as a nurse on the battlefields.

3
The Civil War
  • The Civil War lasted for four years. Three
    million Americans fought in over 10,000 battles
    and skirmishes across the country.
  • More than 620,000 soldiers died.

Lincolns Inauguration
I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to
interfere with the institution of slavery in the
States where it exists. I believe I have no
lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination
to do so.

Gettysburg 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.

39
Gettysburg Address
  • 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.

40
Gettysburg Address
  • 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.

41
Gettysburg Address
  • 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.
