LINCOLN AND PERICLES

I had read many years apart Pericles' Oration suggested by Thucydides on the Peloponnesian War and that by Lincoln at Gettysburg, History repeating itself, Sparta against Athens, South against North. It makes me think that nothing is new under the Sun, thus that Lincoln was not a fast improviser when writing in a couple of pages what he wrote. He knew pretty well Thucydides as he knew the palm of his hands: Not whatsoever that he could be misjudged a copycat, but rather a pallbearer of tradition and human unfathomable fate, upon which he succumbed to live eternally in his Land, as Pericles did in his.
