Transcript
"With malice towards none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the
right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds, : to do all which may
achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and all nations."
Abraham Lincoln
March 4, 1865
This excerpt expresses the view of the post-Civil War period held by
Moderate Reconstructionists.
"But in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this
ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor
power to add or detract. 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. It is rather for us to be here
dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we may 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, for the people, shall not perish from
the earth."
Abraham Lincoln
Gettysburg, Pennsylvania
November 19, 1863
