Youre never going to believe what happend. Lincoln died. The only good white man there ever was gone just like that. Those whites couldn't deal with us blacks being big. Booth that dumb white big guy thinks he's so much better than us. W’ell show him what we can do. How well we work, how good we are and how much we can beat white trash. This just made us stronger and want to prove how much better we will do. Lincoln was owr sacrifice for freedom. Rest in peece Lincoln. I wonder how my wife is taking this. I told her I came to fight to give her our rights so us blacks will be free and be fine. I guess now since Licoln did his job, us blacks are taken care of. Nothing can change that and nobody can get in owr way. The civil war is over. I can finally go home and check up on my wife and see how she is doing and handeling the situation. I guess this is the end of my civil war diery. I hope whoever finds this in the future is free no matter thier color or race, and appreciate linoln and the people who were at war and stood up. Bee free. Goodbye.
