Five Score

Game Of The Week

Five score or one hundred games ago my father helped bring forth on this server a new website, conceived in Victory, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created to play chess.

Now we are engaged in yet another great newsletter, testing whether that website, or any website, so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met at a great game of that newsletter. We have come to dedicate a portion of that game, as a memorial for those who here gave their losses that this newsletter 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 game. The brave men, victors and defeated, 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 active-players, 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 defeated we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these defeated shall not have lost in vain — that this website, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that chess over the board, between two players, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
