Deer Diery,
       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.

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…
