Naz Nabavi 1863 blog due

Deer Diery,
        Me and my soldier friends figured out what Lincoln was doing. After the winning for the battle of Antietam, Lincoln made the emancipashon proclomashon. This meens I can fight, well not just me, all negroes! I'm exited to be in war and maybe since us negroes are joining, we will be able to win. I can't believe out of anyone in owr contry that cood have fixed the problem, it was a wite guy. Us slaves are officially free, I still can't believe it! We just found out in the beginning of the year and I still can't believe it! I thought about visiting my wife now that I am free but it's not worth it. I mean, I haven't seen her in yeers, so I guess it would be better to see my wife later if forget about her. If things keep going in this direcshon ,negros will be stronger than ever!

Sincerely,
Ellis Wilson (Naz)
