Abraham Lincoln - Gettysburg Adress - Paperweight - Magnificent !!
Inspirational saying on the box. Abraham Lincoln Four Score and seven years
ago our fathers brought forth upon this continent, a new nation, conceived
in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men were created
equal. - The Gettysburg Address, November 19.1863 Considered by many
Americans to to be one of the greatest presidents, Abraham Lincoln guided
the nation through the Civil War, Lincoln despised war but viewed it as the
only salvation of the Union. As president, this former Illinois lawyer and
congressman ensured the the strength of his Republican Party, issued the
Emancipation Proclamation granting freedom to slaves, succeeded in the
preservation of the Union, and planned for magnanimous peace. In April 1865,
Lincolns life ended at the hands of an assassin, but his hope survived- "
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"
