What speech or paper starts with "Four Score and Twenty"?

I know this is something in History but what is it, Four score and?

The famous historical speech that starts with "four score and" is the Gettysburg Address. This was spoken by Abraham Lincoln back in 1863. However, the speech starts with "four score and seven years ago" and not "four score and twenty". I do not believe that there is a speech that starts with "four score and twenty".

"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. " This is the opening few words to President Abraham Lincoln's famous Gettysburg Address given in Gettysburg, PA on November 19, 1863.
