OG Lincoln Project Joins The New Lincoln Project

RWN has received the exclusive that Former United States President, Abraham Lincoln, has rewritten his Gettysburg Address and pegged it to his endorsement of Vice President Joe Biden. His new work, just given to RWN’s Devine Reporter, Walter Cronkite, is titled “Heavenly Address.”

Lincoln starts his speech… “Sevenscore and seventeen years ago I worked to unite a nation…” (Editorial Note: A score is equal to 20 years, so he is referencing 157 years ago— 1863, the year he delivered the original speech.)

According to Cronkite, Lincoln was spitting mad that a sitting President would actively work to divide the country.

“Back in my day, there were people actively working to divide the country. They seceded to form the Confederate States of America, and even had their own flag. But they lost. We beat those Southern secessionists in bloody battles throughout the nation. Thank God. But some, a very small minority, never surrendered. And they have found a man who has taken on their cause in the role of President.

Since then, no President has worked to pit state against state, and city against city. No President has refused to dole out federal aide based upon the perceived voting habits of a state. No President has tried to encourage racial division and undo what was accomplished with the ending of the civil war. No President has tried to honor the Confederate flag as much as the American flag.

No President has dared to call people who try to divide America his friend.

So today, I take the extraordinary step to endorse the candidate of the opposing party from the one I founded. Today, I join the new Lincoln Project and endorse Joe Biden, for President of these great United States Of America,” said Lincoln.

Then Lincoln released this speech, what he called his Heavenly Address, which he requested to be distributed on the Internets.

“Sevenscore and seventeen years ago I worked to unite a nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men and women are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great new civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived, and so dedicated, can continue to endure.

We are met on the Internet, while citizens who are still fighting for equality take their battle to the streets of Minneapolis, Kenosha, South Georgia, and beyond. We have come to remember their names, and say their names as a continuing memorial for those who gave their lives, that other men and this great nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate—we cannot hallow—that ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled there, 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 there. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought there 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 there 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 all the people, by all the people, for all the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
