ONE OF THE LEAD ARTICLES - "THE EMANCIPATION COMMISSION" - Details the FIRST US Government move in abolishing slavery in the United States of America. ALL Slaves in the District of Columbia were freed by Congress on April 16, 1862. ALL Slaves in US Territories were freed on June 19, 1862. THESE TWO STEPS WERE PIVOTAL IN THE EVENTUAL FULL EMANCIPATION PROCLAMATION OF JANUARY 1, 1863.
THIS JUNE 24, 1862 NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER NEWSPAPER FROM WASHINGTON DC contains Congressional news, war news, but most importantly AN OPEN AND HONEST DISCUSSION OF THE ANTI-SLAVERY ACTS OF APRIL AND JUNE OF 1862 (THE JUNE 19TH HAVING JUST BEEN PASSED).
