Free Our Slaves!

By Tyler Bray
Civil War Reporter


Abraham Lincoln, the president who outlawed slavery.
People in the Northern States of the United States of America are freeing all of their slaves. These African Americans went from harvesting crops for their masters to building their own houses. "I never thought I'd live to see this day," said a free African American from Pennsylvania. They seem to be really excited about the outlawing of slavery.
