  1. Each year on Nov. 19, the Lincoln Fellowship of Pennsylvania invites us to join them in Gettysburg to honor the ideas and feelings expressed in Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address. Republican President Lincoln spoke at the dedication of a national cemetery for the soldiers killed in July 1863, on Nov. 19, 1863.

    At the time he spoke, the election campaign of 1864 had already begun, the war between the states continued, and the country was violently divided. Lincoln offered these words:

    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. 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.
