      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.

Fun quiz. I finally figured it out after 10 20 minutes then just looked the rest up cause I couldn't remember half of it.

Really brilliant idea, well done. Because I found it from the link on the 100 most common english words quiz, i just started guessing random words, and i got it pretty quickly. nonetheless, amazing work!

That's fun idea for a quiz, but some words can be nearly impossible to guess. I especially don't get how I could have found proper names like Sally and Dr. Seuss.

I agree. This is one of the reasons the instructions point out "The intention here is not to get all of the answers but to generally solve the puzzle."

I continue to look for ways to help people get more answers. Because there are no hints, I can't tell you want those ways are :). I also can't confirm or deny whether one of those ways might have helped you get Sally.

The author's name should be solvable for people recognize the text.
