A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Civil War Collection - THE CIVIL WAR was the costliest war in terms of human lives ever to occur in America. The turning point of the war took place near the little southeastern Pennsylvania town of Gettysburg over a three day period in early July of 1863. The loss of life on both sides was horrendous and it appeared that the Union victory at Gettysburg signalled the certain end of the war with Lee’s forces trapped by the swollen Potomac River. However, General Meade did not press the attack and Lee was able to escape when the river subsided. More bitter fighting was to follow but from that point on the Confederacy grew weaker while the Union grew stronger. The agony was finally ended with Lee’s surrender at Appomattox, Virginia April 9, 1865 to General Ulysses S. Grant. The Gettysburg National Military Park, established in 1895, includes the battlefield and a soldiers’ national cemetery dedicated by President Abraham Lincoln November 19, 1863. This site was preserved by Congress as a national historical site and in 1953 the name was changed with the establishment of the Appomattox Court House National Historical Park. The Gettysburg Address of President Lincoln on November 19, 1863 came after a two hour oration by Edward Everett. The simple, straight forward two hundred and sixty eight words by Lincoln were delivered in less than three minutes, and yet are remembered as some of the most famous words uttered by any president before or after. FOURSCORE AND SEVEN years ago, 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 battle field 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. But in a larger sense we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot 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 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.
