Lincoln\'s Inspiring Speech
"The Gettysburg Address" given to the soldiers by Abraham Lincoln on November 19, 1863 was an inspiring speech that announced the honor and held the veterans of the war in high esteem. "Conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal" (Lincoln 1). Lincoln reiterates the fact that the Civil War is about the fact that "all men are created equal". "We have come to dedicating a portion of that field; as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live" (Lincoln 1). He brings up the numerous soldiers that died for their cause. We have made a place for them to let them know that they had fought for a great cause. "The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what we did here" (Lincoln 1). Lincoln rightfully says people of the next generations will never forget what had happened in the Civil War. He says we wouldn\'t remember this speech, but it is still fresh in everyone\'s mind even 150 years later. "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" (Lincoln 1). Lincoln doesn\'t want the soldiers\' lives to be wasted on an empty cause. He wants everyone to help in fulfilling the cause the soldiers gave their lives for. This amazing and inspiring speech led the US to a slave free country.
