Sitka National Cemetery,
Sitka Borough, Alaska
Address By President Lincoln
At The Dedication Of
The Gettysburg National Cemetery
November 19, 1863.
Four Score 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 Can Not Dedicate-
We Can Not Consecrate - We Can Not 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.

If you know of someone buried in Sitka National Cemetery, or would like to volunteer to photograph & submit Sitka National Cemetery, please email me.
Note from County Coordinator: In posting these listings, there were a few differences on the locations between the copies of the list of burials sent to me by submitter and the Government's VA website. I have decided to go with the locations listed on the copies of list of burials since it came from Sitka National Cemetery itself and submitted to me by the submitter. On cases where the numbers were written on the stones and were shown on the photograph itself, i used that location listed on the stone itself. If you know for a fact that the location listed on this site for anyone is wrong and can prove the correct location, please email me. Thankyou!
