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 the field, as a final resting-place for those who here gave their lives that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper
现在我们正进行一场伟大的内战，这是一场 检验这一国家或者任何一个像我们这样孕育 于自由并信守其主张的国家是否能长久存在 的战争。我们聚集在这场战争中一个伟大战 场上，将这个战场上的一块土地奉献给那些 在此地为了这个国家的生存而牺牲了自己生 命的人，作为他们的最终安息之所。我们这 样做是完全适当和正确的。
