Keith discusses the truth behind President Abraham Lincoln’s edict. Widely claimed to “free all slaves” by those promoting the Lincoln Myth, his proclamation did *not* free nearly a million slaves in the united states. Lincoln specifically exempted from freedom every slave in every place he had legal authority in. Be skeptical when a politician attempts to claim a moral high ground. Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation political stunt was not what our government schools told us it was.
