Lincoln, Abraham: The Gettysburg Address

278 个单词,这么简洁的演讲,真是难得。

 

美国内战,是为了

 

 — 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.

 

对这样的文章,不知怎么感觉。

 

另外, Four score and seven years ago 是87年前。

score,  廿。
