Cartoon of the Week: '... Their last full measure'

The News-Herald - May 24
" ... 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."       
- Abraham Lincoln, June 1, 1865

Every generation has had its guardians. This appeared in The News-Herald, but it is for all those who gave "their last full measure" everywhere, for all of us. 
That's the Point!
