Lincoln’s Speech on the Dred Scott decision Date: June 26, 1857 Subject: mulattos/ race mixing “Jude Stephen A Douglass is specially horrified at the thought of the mixing blood by the white and black races: Agreed for once-a thousand times agreed. There are white men enough to marry all the white women, and black men enough to marry all the Black women; and so let them be married”. P.S. The Emancipation Proclamation wasn’t about freeing blacks from slavery it was about enlisting blacks into the army that provided the balance of power that gave the North victory over the south. Lincoln wrote five letters stating blacks helped the USA win the Civil War. Lets keep it real and untwisted.
