ceding the regular commencement

outlined the object of the award and

Patriotism is love for one's coun
try and a desire to serve it.
Americanism is the love which
American patriots have for their own
country, or the preference of its in
terests. Patriots, such as Patrick Henry,
showed Americanism by their influ
ential quotations and speeches. Pat
rick Henry's famous quotation, "Give
me liberty or give me death," showed
his Americanism. '
James Otis defended the colonial
merchants by his firy speeches
against the British Writ of Assist
ance. By standing up for the colon
ies rights and liberties he showed bis
Samuel Adams and John Hancock
stood by the colonies' rights and lib
erties whenever England tried to put
over any unreasonable measures.
Washington, our first president and
commander-in-chief of the army dur
ing the Revolution, showed his Amer
icanism by his willingness to help his
Nathan Hale, a spy for the colonies
during the Revolution, showed his
Americanism by his last words: "I
only regret that I have but one life
to give for my country."
Webster, another great statesman,
aided his country by his eloquent
speeches. One of his firy quotations
"Liberty and union, now and for
ever, one and inseperable," has shown
much of his Americanism. He strived,
as other loyal Americans had done,
to keep or make this a great free na
tion of the people, by the people, and
for the people.
Lincoln expressed a high ideal of
Americanism in his Gettysburg speech
which is as follows:
"Four score and seven years ago
our fathers brought forth upon this
continent a new nation conceived in
liberty and dedicated to the proposi
tion 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 dedicat
ed, can long endure. We are met on
a great battle field of that war. We
are 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 do this.
But in a larger sense we cannot ded
icate, we cannot consecrate, we can
not hallow this ground. The brave
men living and dead, who struggled
here, have consecrated it far above
our power to add or detract. The
world will little note nor long remem
ber, what we suy here. It is for us
the living, rather to be dedicated here
to the unfinished work which they
who fought 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 their last full meas
ure of devotion; that we highly re
solve that these dead shall not have
died in vain; that this nation, under
God, shall have a new birth of free
dom, and that the government of the

Everyone can show his American
ism by being lew-abiding.
An attitude of respect toward the
men that fought in the naval and
military service for the V. S. would
be promoting Americanism.
