Lincoln’s Wit/Wisdom 231

'… that on the first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, 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.'
- Abraham Lincoln, Emancipation Proclamation
