Know and Learn From History

History is not always what we imagine...

Abraham Lincoln will forever be known as the President who, by signing the Emancipation Proclamation on September 22, 1862, abolished slavery. What many fail to realize is that, as wonderful as this act was, President Lincoln's motivation and reasons for doing this was more militarily strategic. 

Also, even though they were granted freedom on January 1, 1863, many freed slaves did not know that they were free until June 19, 1863.
