Join us to learn more about President Lincoln and the Emancipation Proclamation.

It is hard for us today to understand how politically dangerous the Emancipation Proclamation was for Abraham Lincoln.  Some historians say that the roots of the Emancipation Proclamation started with Lincoln back in 1848.  Join Paul Goebbel for a first-person account of these events.
