references to the reasons for the many deaths, asking the nation to dedicate themselves to the unfinished work of those who died, and invoking the name of God. This was done in order to explain how the cause of the United States of America was a holy cause, dedicated to freedom; and that freedom was a holy thing. The nation that was conceived in liberty must dedicate itself to expanding that liberty to everyone, and that was the reason those men died. It was now up to the survivors to finish the work of saving the nation and bring freedom to all it's citizens. To do otherwise would amount to the destruction of the country and allowing those who made the ultimate sacrifice to have died in vain.
