1863 Blog post// Gaby Romero

January 12, 1863

We african americans have come a long way to be treated even a little bit more equal to whites. I will not be a slave i would like to be called human or person. Some days ago The sir Abraham Lincoln called The Emancipation Proclamation where it would give me and all my people to have the right to fight for the union. Only 11 days ago it was a right and 7 days ago they would like me to join their army. I was very honor to do so even though i'm a recruit with no experience. But to i doesn't matter i will fight for my people to be free and have the rights or more right than me. I’ve learn so much the days me been here. I've learn drills, strategies, tactics and more things. I am trying to look for my friend who left me and year ago i'm not so sure were he at. An abolishment would be better and would stop the misstreatin of poor people. I will fight until the Confederacy gets destroyed. I will pray everything goes right,. My life is in danger and i have so much to do still. My mother and brothr life are depending on me and I'm the one taking care of them. I pray for everything to go correctly &’ nothing bad happen.

Working for everyone,
just to get rejected.
feeling like im nothin,
i dont get respected.
My color, my story, has everyon disgusted.
I need your help so I can abolist all of this.
I need to learn  drills
i dont wann be taking pills,
Working to get killed.
discriminating me like you know me.
I want to be equal,
i need a pay to take care of my family,
sorry to inform you but you owe.
making me do the dirty work,
 haven't you heard heard I am no slave no more.
Emancipation Proclamation
without any good intention
Im doing even worse,
i dont get a chance,
to ride a horse.
I am capable of so much more,
You know it, I know It.
I'm For your jealousy,
But we both have to work in infantry.
not telling me what the strategy.
destroying your own army
because of your pride.
Dont worry i dont need to learn from you,
i can get my own ride,
causing a better blockade on
me than on the actual war,
 dont worry I wont say a word.
I need food,
i know i am no white but i am no fool,
i see what you ar…
