The Battle For Equality “All men are created equal”
The Gettysburg Address by Abraham Lincoln / November 19, 1863
“a new nation, conceived in Liberty”
“dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal”
“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.”
“—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.”
