From “Lincoln 365,” by Arnold Kunst:
'… That on the first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, all persons held as slaves within any State or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free.'
- Abraham Lincoln
‘If we do not lay out ourselves in the service of mankind, whom should we serve?’
- John Adams
