Edmund Sears Quote


Picture Quote:



For lo! the days are hastening on, 
 By prophet-bards foretold, 
 When with the ever-circling years, 
 Comes round the age of gold; 
 When Peace shall over all the earth 
 Its ancient splendors fling 
 And the whole world send back the song 
 Which now the angels sing.  - Edmund Sears

Quote of the day

I do order and declare that all persons held as slaves within said designated States, and part of States, are, and henceforward shall be free;... And upon this act, sincerely believed to be an act of justice, warranted by the Constitution, upon military necessity, I invoke the considerate judgment of mankind, and the gracious favor of Almighty God.
