He began by referring to the 1776 Declaration of Independence, saying : "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." He continued by saying that the task of the current generation was to honour the dead by showing "increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotionâ¦and that we here highly resolveâ¦that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."
