Conversation #3: Lincoln’s Address
RT: 1:20

Person A:
Listen to this—Lincoln told Congress, “One section of our country believes slavery is right and ought to be extended, while the other believes it is wrong and ought not to be extended. That is the only substantial dispute.” That’s enough by me.

Person B:
Lincoln can have his Union. Without Virginia and without our slaves. Don’t care if he wants Congress to pay us for settin’ ‘em free. Won’t be enough. How will we farm? And where will they all go if we let ‘em free?

Person C:
What will they do, being free? They can’t do nothing ‘less we tell ‘em what to do. What to plant. When to harvest. They got nothin’: No money. No land. No learnin’. Lincoln can’t tell us nothing. He’s not our president. Jeff Davis is our man.

Enslaved person:
Lord, it’s true. Lincoln says we’ll soon be free. These white folks think we don’t know how to be free. I tell you, I’m always free inside me, and I know how to shoe a horse or plant a tobacco field better than any of them.

Museum Summary:
In December 1862, President Lincoln proposed a Constitutional Amendment: that in any state ending slavery before 1900, the government would pay for the value of each freed slave. This compromise, which would have extended American slavery for another two generations, was rejected. One month later, Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation.
