    Read this excerpt from Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address and then answer the question that follows: (1) 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 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. (2) We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that this 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

    Definitely a solemn discussion of events, because Lincoln wrote the Gettysburg Address in a dignified manner, aiming to let the people know that he is keeping his promises. Plus here, "The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract." He is discussing events, so that wouldn't make sense for a mission statement. Also if you ever want to easily learn & remember about stuff like the Civil War, or anything historical in general, Historical Fiction actually really helps with that! :)

    If you are ever interested in reading a great Civil War Historical Fiction series, I highly suggest the Refiner's Fire series by Lynn Austin. They're really good! :3 The second one is my favorite, it's a lot like Mulan.
