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.”
