Abraham Lincoln, speaking at the battleground of Gettysburg, said, “. . . we cannot dedicate—we cannot consecrate—we cannot 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 . . . .” Which is the main idea of this paragraph? A)The men who died at the battleground of Gettysburg died for no good reason. B)The importance of the struggle that took place at the battleground of Gettysburg will be soon forgotten. C)This speech will be soon forgotten. D)The struggle that took place at the battleground of Gettysburg is more important than what can be said about it.
