Abraham Lincoln & the Emancipation Proclamation

Friday, February 12, 2010

Happy 201st birthday, Abraham Lincoln!

America will always remember President Lincoln for the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation. In fact, Black History Month, which we are now celebrating, is during Lincoln's birth month of February in part to honor him for the abolition of slavery.

Concerning that signing, Lincoln remarked:

"I never, in my life, felt more certain that I was doing right, than I do in signing this paper."

So I honor President Lincoln on his birthday for that signing, for doing the right thing, and for his life.

Let us not forgot the many souls who died during the war. Without their sacrifice, Lincoln's actions would have been for naught.
