While the conflict over slavery was a factor in the Civil War, the abolition of slavery did not become a stated objective until Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, which went into effect on January 1, 1863. Now, to commemorate the 150-year anniversary of the Proclamation, here is a new, unabridged audio recording of that historic document, freeing the slaves held in the still Confederate controlled states. Heralded as one of America’s most significant documents, this is a piece of history not to be missed.

    " Wow, reading the short document is a bit different than learning about it in a history class. This document was really a cannon ball across the bow and was a very clever, if somewhat threatening, document putting the confederacy on notice. "

    " President Abraham Lincoln's pivotal speech in 1862 proclaiming freedom to all slaves throughout the United States of America..... "

    " You can hear a powerful, warm voice inside your head as you read. For me, Lincoln's 'voice' is the auditory equivalent to a fine, barrel-aged bourbon. The EP is brief, eloquent, and powerful. It's an hugely important piece of history, but reading it is a pleasure, not a chore. "

    " An absolutely astounding document, even if it was completely irrelevant at the time of its issuance. "

About the Author
Author Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865) was the sixteenth president of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. He led the US through its greatest constitutional, military, and moral crises—the American Civil War—preserving the Union, abolishing slavery, strengthening the national government, and modernizing the economy. Reared in a poor family in rural Indiana, he was a self-educated man. In the 1830s he became a country lawyer, a Whig Party leader, and Illinois state legislator. He later served as a one-term member of the House of Representatives during the 1840s.
