AMERICAN CIVIL WAR(1861 1865)
(A) ** No, we still remember and study Lincoln’s words over 150 years later.
(B) Who is President Lincoln?
(C) Yes, he was right!
(D) All of the above.
Concept note-1: -He said Lincoln was mistaken that “the world will little note, nor long remember what we say here.” Rather, the Bostonian remarked, “The world noted at once what he said, and will never cease to remember it. The battle itself was less important than the speech."
Concept note-2: -In the address, Lincoln says, “The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.” When he is saying this, Lincoln is explaining how nobody will remember what people think or say, unless the American people pull together and do something.
Concept note-3: -Everyone knows the irony of that line where Lincoln says “the world will little note, nor long remember what we say here”-ironic because his brief dedicatory remarks have become the most famous American speech.
Concept note-4: -The world will little note, nor long remember, what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. 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.
Concept note-5: -The main message of the Gettysburg Address is that ideals are worth dying for and that it is up to the living to carry on the work of those who died to protect ideals. The ideals of equality and freedom are the bedrock of the United States as a nation.
