    Gary, thanks for the heads up and the info on the Zoom meeting. I could not seem to pull it up. Guess I'm just not that good with computers. Wanted to thank you for the opportunity to sit in, though. And hope it went well.

    Best regards,

    Harry

    Did You Know That John Adams Was Partially Responsible for the Abolishment of Slavery? Another interesting story that I don't recall ever hearing previously (but I've probably forgotten most of what I learned in my history classes in school??

    Did you know about John Adams' link to the abolishment of slavery?
    He instilled in his son, John Quincy Adams, a hatred of slavery and the desire to end it. That son would also become President of the U.S. and then serve in Congress for 17 years. He would spend his time fighting to end slavery and would become known as the "hellhound of abolition."
    Just as John Adams passed the torch to John Quincy Adams to fight for freedom of all, then John Quincy Adams would pass the torch to a little known, young Congressman, from Illinois that would 15 years later become President and implement John Quincy Adams' 3-step plan for ending slavery.
    Without the Adams family, there would be no Declaration of Independence... and likely no Emancipation Proclamation. I suspect this might be the topic of next Monday's zoom session...?​https://www.patriotacademy.com/dyk-0...b114022b1ec50d

    There are four more weeks of the Monday Night Zoom meetings on 'The Constitution and our Country' and not too late to register for the free meeting.

    Good info, Gary! Thanks for posting.

    Something else you're not likely to learn from the revisionist 'history' books now of days......

    1. Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation was worded so as to only free slaves in the Confederate States. Slaves in Northern slave holding states were specifically excluded. The fear on Lincoln's part being that those states might well secede and join the Confederacy if he included them. Also...... As the CSA was a separate and sovereign nation, we had our own duly elected government and were not in any way under the authority of the US President...... Thus, Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation had no legal basis in the South whatsoever.

    2. Further...... Priour to the end of the war...... The Confederate Congress passed their own (conditional) Emancipation Proclamation. It applied to all present (at the time) slaves and former slaves who voluntarily took up arms in defense of the South. Each man who did so was to receive at war's end a veteran's pension, 20 acres of land, a mule and their wife and children would be free as well. There were in fact, many free men of colour as well as those who were slaves and former slaves who had already taken up arms for the South. Especially in Louisiana. Many of them were the sons and grandsons of the free men of colour who fought the British alongside Andy Jackson and Jean LaFitte at the battle of New Orleans in 1814. FWIW, President Davis, Gen. Lee and our great-great grandmother's cousin Judah Benjamin had pressed for this from the beginning of the war. Representatives from Mississippi and Georgia were the primary opponents of this and so it took several years to get it through Congress and signed into law. Sadly, during the 5 years of Yankee military occupation and martial law following the war when people in the South had no citizenship status and no vote and their land and personal property was being confiscated (stolen)...... The Yankee occupiers treated free men of colour just as badly as they did former slaves and all Southerners for that matter.

    Just a couple of foot notes to history that all should be aware of,

    Harry

    Do you know the true meaning of the 2nd Amendment? Many do not...

    https://www.patriotacademy.com/dyk-0...fb34c6613498d7

    This is a short video made as part of the Constitution training by the Patriot Academy addressing 'What did our founders' intend with the 2nd Amendment, which goes back to the original proposals and comments made by our founders on this question. Well worth watching for any of us~
