  • Today in History-the Emancipation Proclamation

    Today also marks the issuing of the Emancipation Proclamation by Lincoln. While it most certainly didn't free all the slaves, it did free some & gave license to free any others that Union army came across.....it also introduced blacks into the Union Army as soldiers (though some had come into it beforehand). Finally, it helped ensure a political stance that would help keep the Confederacy from gaining foreign support.

    The muffled drums sad roll has beat the soldier's last tatoo. No more on life's parade shall meet that brave and fallen few.
