Bailey Chapter 21
“I say that we must not interfere with the institution of slavery where it exists, because
the Constitution forbids it, and the general welfare does not require us to do so.”
~Lincoln 1851
“…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.”
~Lincoln 1863
