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!
