Transcript of The Gettysburg Address by President Abraham Lincoln

Duty to Nation
The purpose of the three speeches is to boost moral, and bring in nationalism into the two nations.

Duty to Nation- "Four score and seven years ago our father brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal."
The Gettysburg Address by President Abraham Lincoln
Duty to Nation- "I believe that I interpret the will of the congress and of the purple when I assert that we will not only defend ourselves to the uttermost, but will make it very certain that this form of treachery shall never again endanger us"
Pearl Harbor Address to the Nation by President Franklin D. Roosevelt
"We take up arms to resolve, after having resolved the problem of our land frontier, the problem of our maritime frontiers; we want to break the territorial chains which suffocate us in our own sea; since a people of forty-five million sould is not truly free if it does not have free access to the ocean."
Speech of 10 June 1940, Declaration of War on France and England by Benito Mussolini

Quote for Argument- "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 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."
Quote for Argument- "No matter how long it will take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory"
