Question: Four score 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 battlefield 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. Lincoln argues that the war must continue. Discuss his claim and the evidence he provides in his speech to support it. make it really short and dont plagiarism it

Lincoln's claim to continue the Civil War stems from his desire to uphold the ideal on which the nation was founded: that all men are created equal. He uses the symbol of the battlefield as evidence, stating that the soldiers who gave their lives did so for this cause. Further, he leverages the idea of a 'new birth of freedom', indicating that the war is necessary for the preservation of the democratic system of a government 'of the people, by the people, for the people'. His claim relies heavily on the emotional impact of the sacrifices made and the nobility of the cause they died for.
