Passage

In modern times Abraham lincoln stands as the model of a compassionate statesman. He showed this quality not only in striving for the emancipation of the American blacks but in the dignity with which he conducted the American Civil War. Lincoln did not fancy himself as a liberator. He thought it would be better for all if emancipation was a gradual process spread over many years. He proposed compensation for slave-owners in US bonds and grants for the rehabilitation of blacks - ‘colonisation’ as he called it. But fate was to deem otherwise. The haste with which the south wanted to break away from the Union with the North, compelled him to move faster than he expected. Perhaps more than most men of his time he had thought through the issue of slavery’. We must free the slaves’, he said, or be ourselves subdued ‘Before reading his first draft of the Proclamation of Emancipation, he told his colleagues. In giving freedom to the slaves, we assure freedom to the free’.

Lincoln replied. As of they never went to war?

When the news came of the victory of the Northern against the confederate forces, some one suggested that the head of the confederation Administration, Jefferson Davies, really ought to be hanged. ‘Judge not, that yet be not judged’.

Lincoln replied. As to the demand for the, prosecution of rebels, Lincoln replies. We must extinguish our resentments if we expect harmony and union. This was his last recorded utterance.
