Note: Amazon has grouped together reviews of several different editions of this book; this review is for The Emancipation Proclamation (Little Books of Wisdom).

Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation is justly famed the world over, and every American or would-be American owes it to himself or herself to reread it occasionally, and this Applewood Books version is a good choice for reasons besides being sturdy, nice looking, and inexpensive.

A brief Foreward lays out the timeline of the drafting of the Emancipation Proclamation, including the well known quotation from Lincoln's reply to a Horace Greely editorial accusing him of being remiss with regard to emancipation, in which Lincoln makes clear that regardless of his personal feelings about slavery (he loathed it), his paramount object was saving the Union NOT saving or destroying slavery. What follows is the text of the three different versions of the proclamation: first draft, preliminary version, and the final, issued proclamation, along with Lincoln's introductory remarks to his cabinet regarding the second version, and last, the Thirteenth Amendment.

Note: Applewood Books has produced a nice looking inexpensive series of sturdy pocket-sized reprints of important American books, documents, speeches, pamphlets, and poems, the Little Books of Wisdom, uniform with this volume, that are ideal for gifting to doctors, lawyers, teachers, business professionals, and students of same:

This is just a great thing to have on your Kindle! If you know someone (especially a younger person) that has never read this great document, just hand them your Kindle. You'll be doing them a favor

I never really knew what was stated in the Emancipation Proclamation. A very interesting piece of Civil War history that everyone should read.

Should be a required reading for all Americans and is well deserving of a 5 Star rating This was a very important writing in the execution of Freedom. A Freedom that was fought for and cost many lives.

Written during that important crossroads of American history, the Civil War, President Lincoln's proclamation to free the Slaves shows the intellect and the forcefulness of this lawyers fine brain.

Issuing this proclamation helped bring the Civil War to a satisfactory conclusion. Slaves freed by the proclamation left the South and working cotton fields and many joined the Union army. The South's economy suffered and the Union troops were made stronger by the slaves who defected. Also, the Union gained a second cause for fighting the war -- not only to preserve the Union but to free those in bondage and provide them with economic opportunity.

Abraham Lincoln was THE Greatest President to ever live.
For those re-learning Washington's Bio these days who disagree
or who want to point out Reagan freed MILLIONS from Soviet Hegemony
I must needs ask "Without his courage to free the Slaves, if their Freedom
was obtained years or decades or even a Generation later at even more suffering to our
National Soul what kind of Nation would we be now?"

He Freed the Slaves
He embraced the Confederates & welcomed them back as Brothers "with Malice Toward None!"
His Legacy is the American Spirit, sometimes battered, never broken, always Faithful to pursue the Truth.
