THE
GETTYSBURG
ADDRESS
 
 
 
 
Four
score
and
seven
years
ago
our
fathers
brought
forth
on
this
continent,
a
new
nation,
conceived
in
Liberty,
and
dedicated
to
the
proposition
that
all
men
are
created
equal.
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
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.
But,
in
a
larger
sense,
we
can
not
dedicate --
we
can
not
consecrate --
we
can
not
hallow --
this
ground.
The
brave
men,
living
and
dead,
who
struggled
here,
have
consecrated
it,
far
above
our
poor
power
to
add
or
detract.
The
world
will
little
note,
nor
long
remember
what
we
say
here,
but
it
can
never
forget
what
they
did
here.
It
is
for
us
the
living,
rather,
to
be
dedicated
here
to
the
unfinished
work
which
they
who
fought
here
have
thus
far
so
nobly
advanced.
It
is
rather
for
us
to
be
here
dedicated
to
the
great
task
remaining
before
us --
that
from
these
honored
dead
we
take
increased
devotion
to
that
cause
for
which
they
gave
the
last
full
measure
of
devotion --
that
we
here
highly
resolve
that
these
dead
shall
not
have
died
in
vain --
that
this
nation,
under
God,
shall
have
a
new
birth
of
freedom --
and
that
government
of
the
people,
by
the
people,
for
the
people,
shall
not
perish
from
the
earth.

What do you think? Is it fun? Too hard? How could this type of quiz be improved?

This series is great! Easy enough to get most of the common words, but hard to get all the rest.

I like the series! But as kiwirage says after getting the common words it's hard to get the rest. Perhaps you could try and come up with something similar to what kiwirage does in some of his quizzes, eg http://www.jetpunk.com/user-quizzes/97243/solve-the-secret-country-2 What I mean is that after guessing some of the words you somehow get clues on some of the remaining ones? Or maybe highlight words with different colours depending on whether they're nouns or verbs?

Interesting ideas. I will put some thought into it. I wonder how much I can get away with and still call the series "Clueless" :) :/ :?.

I feel like the objective is not to guess all the words but just what it is, so if you didn't have the title of the text as an answer but accepted it for each word, working out what the text was would win

I agree. If you get only some of the words, but figure out what the puzzle is supposed to be, I think you can give yourself credit for getting it.

I think if you know most of the content of the Address, it would be much easier. As a Brit, it isn't something we are taught. Still enjoyed it though.

I thought it was these brave men have HALLOWED it, not consecrated it?
