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. Answer the following using text evidence and explanation and analysis in each answer. Answers should be paragraphs in paragraph form.

The Gettysburg Address's primary idea revolves around the preservation of the Union through the tumultuous period of the Civil War. This concept is embodied in the phrase "Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure." The nation that Abraham Lincoln refers to is none other than the Union; the Union that was conceived in liberty and equality, the Union that was now being tested on the battlefield. This brings into light the overarching purpose of the civil war - deciding whether a nation that stands for such values can withstand the trials of dissent and discord. Moreover, Lincoln later refers to the Union as 'this nation, under God', revealing that the struggle to maintain the Union's continuity doesn't merely stem from a political or societal standpoint but holds a greater, divine significance. He reinforces this idea by asserting that the war is intended to ensure that this 'government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth'. Hence, the text evinces that the primary rationale behind the Civil War was to ensure that the Union, and consequently, the ideas and values that it encompasses, survive the tests of time and tribulation.
