The Gettysburg Address - Abraham Lincoln - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the speech The Gettysburg Address:

Mr. President tells us to remember those who died for our country's values.

My favorite Abraham Lincoln quote from the speech:

"That we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain."

Questions I pondered while reading The Gettysburg Address:

Why is this concept still a challenge for us?

Why are we still fighting about the Civil war?

My thoughts about The Gettysburg Address:

Knowing history is how we stop it from repeating.

Never, never, again.

One nation, indivisible.
