Currier & Ives Lithograph of Abraham Lincoln with Slaves

President Abraham Lincoln issued an Emancipation Proclamation, in 1863, freeing American slaves. It had limited effect, however, because eleven States had seceded from the Union.

The President wanted a Constitutional Amendment to abolish slavery everywhere in the country. He worked hard to make that happen. 

This image depicts an undated Currier & Ives lithograph showing President Lincoln with slaves. The use of "1863" refers to the Emancipation Proclamation.
