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. "
