Inscription.
"...that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause 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

We Are Young. We Have Died.
Remember Us.

Whether our lives and our deaths were for peace and a new hope or for nothing, we cannot say; it is you who must say this.

We Were Young. We Have Died.
Remember Us......
Archibald MacLeish

....let us never forget the costly sacrifice they have laid upon the Altar of Freedom.
Abraham Lincoln
