Thanks Larry for these. A always loved the Gettysburg campaign ones. To do the Maryland campaign is a great idea.

Thanks

The Times and Daily News both criticize President Lincoln's address to the negroes relative to emancipation. His views were pronounced impracticable.


Thought that this was interesting...since the Emancipation Proclamation was safely tucked away in a desk drawer, to wait for a Federal victory of some significance. Wonder what this piece is referring to....???

That the "main body" of the ANV was headed towards Hagerstown was correct, that Jackson was headed there was not-;)

And yes Larry, please keep these coming!

Steve,

I subscribe to an online newspaper service. I just checked random 1862 issues and emancipation was a heavily
debated topic, especially in the British newspapers, long before Lincoln made his announcement following the
Sharpsburg battle. Among numerous proposals were for the free Blacks of the "North" to be resettled in Africa.

In response to your question, Lincoln must have met with some Black leaders prior to the Maryland Campaign
regarding emancipation. I'll see if I can find more particulars on this.

The vitriol of the period newspapers (North & South) is a must-read to get a better understanding of what average
Americans had to deal with at the time. Fascinating stuff !

Best Regards,

Greg
