                                Abraham Lincoln's                                           Gettysburg Address

Sentence 4: "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."
Comments: Place is used here as an objective complement, as as an expletive. The relative pronoun who has the demonstrative pronoun those as its antecedent. The first that in that that nation might live is an abbreviated form of so that, a subordinating conjunction.
