    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.

    A lot of people don't realize that Lincoln only freed the slaves in the southern states who succeeded from the union.

    10 Facts about the Emancipation Proclamation
    LEARN THE HISTORY AND POLITICS SURROUNDING THIS DOCUMENT
    The Emancipation Proclamation is arguably one of the top ten most important documents in the history of the United States; however, it is also one of the most misunderstood. Here are ten facts providing the basics on the proclamation and the history surrounding it.

    [​IMG]Fact #1: Lincoln actually issued the Emancipation Proclamation twice. Abraham Lincoln issued the preliminary Emancipation Proclamation on September 22nd, 1862. It stipulated that if the Southern states did not cease their rebellion by January 1st, 1863, then Proclamation would go into effect. When the Confederacy did not yield, Lincoln issued the final Emancipation Proclamation on January 1st, 1863.

    Fact #2: The Emancipation Proclamation only applied to the states in rebellion.
    President Lincoln justified the Emancipation Proclamation as a war measure intended to cripple the Confederacy. Being careful to respect the limits of his authority, Lincoln applied the Emancipation Proclamation only to the Southern states in rebellion.
