Racial Justice: The Task Remaining Before US
“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 and for the people shall not perish from the earth. “
