If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that…. I have here stated my purpose according to my view of official duty;and i intend no modification my oft-expressed personal wish that all men everywhere could be free.
~ Abraham Lincoln
