Welcome Back

Welcome to a brand new school year. There have been many changes in the district this year and we are all going to need some time to adjust. As such, we will move rather slowly with the newness of the school, curriculum, technology, schedule and other items that come up. I will be posting homework, assignments, and other items that are pertinent to what we are doing on a daily basis. You will also find other resources that we will use in class here: http://mrduffhistoryclass.wikispaces.com/Home. We will be using Google Classroom in class this year. It is a place to collaborate, discuss, and hand in work for this class. We will work on it the first few months of school.

Gettysburg Address Extra Credit

Memorize as much of the Gettysburg Address as you can by next Monday. Points will be awarded based on how much you can memorize. This is optional

Gettysburg Address

"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 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 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. 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."
