The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.

President Abraham Lincoln 
Gettysburg Address 
November, 1863  

During his Gettysburg Address, President Lincoln humbly acknowledged that his brief speech would not stand the test of time; that words alone could never compare to the actions of the men who nobly fought and died here.
