Primary source response | American history homework help

This week you learned about the American Civil War (1861-1865), a conflict that, very simply,  was about slavery. However, as President Abraham Lincoln suggests in his famous The Gettysburg Address.pdfPreview the document, more than slavery was at stake in the Civil War.

Consider the following passage from Lincoln’s The Gettysburg Address:

“Four score and seven years ago [in 1776] our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting-place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.” In this passage, Lincoln states that the Civil War is being fought so that the nation “might live.”
