林肯总统于18631119日发表盖茨堡演讲 (Gettysburg Address)

在林肯发表演讲之前的演讲人是爱德华.爱弗瑞特 (Edward Everett) ,也是那天最受欢迎的演讲人之一。他整整演说了两个小时。但是爱弗瑞特向林肯承认:「我希望我能够告诉我自己,我在那两小时的演讲中所表达的、能与你在两分钟内所要表达的理念有一点点的雷同之处。」虽然林肯认为:「这个世界对我们在这里所说的话,也许不会特别留意,也不会永远记住」,但是他这篇简短的演讲却一直存留在美国人的回忆里。你第一次听到盖茨堡演讲是什么时候呢?

The speaker before Lincoln, Edward Everett, was one of the most popular orators of his day. He spoke for two hours. Yet Everett admitted to Lincoln, "I wish that I could flatter myself that I had come as near to the central idea of the occasion in two hours as you did in two minutes." In spite of Lincoln's disclaimer that "the world will little note, nor long remember what we say here," his brief speech continues to echo in the American memory. Where did you first hear a line from the Gettysburg Address?
