The Gettysburg Address, Abraham Lincoln's most famous speech and one of the most quoted political speeches in United States history, was delivered at the dedication of the Soldiers' National Cemetery in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania on November 19, 1863, during the American Civil War, four and a half months after the Battle of Gettysburg.
"Fourscore 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 battle-field 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 this nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this."

The Bloom Clock is a research and learning project about flowering plants. The project has both learning and research components. The learning component involves helping people identify plants by means of visual keys, such as colour. The research component is aimed at creating a language for discussing the bloom times of wildflowers and other plants that is neutral with respect to climate, region, and hemisphere. The bloom clock is the largest of a number of observational clock projects and comprises about 800 plants and over 100 recognition keys. Individual users and classes are welcome to join this project - school classes and both amateur and professional horticulturalists are all welcome.
