When a portion of the former battleground was dedicated as the Gettysburg National Cemetery.

From his famous Gettysburg Address:

"We are met on a great battlefield of that war (the Civil 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 (the USA) might live."
