Who Said It?Trivia brain teasers have some element of trivia in them, but they are not just pure trivia questions.

1. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.
2. Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory and our interests are in grave danger.
3. And if America is to be a great nation this must become true. So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York. Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania!
4. The world has turned over many times since I took the oath on the plain at West Point and the hopes and dreams have long since vanished.
