Abraham Lincoln and Reformers : Abolitionists; Excerpts from Newspapers and Other Sources (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Abraham Lincoln and Reformers: Abolitionists; Excerpts From Newspapers and Other Sources But in a nation composed of free whites and negro slaves, society, if it may be called such, is in a most deplorable condition. One por tion of the people is separated from the other by an impassable barrier, in regard to all that binds man to man in social fellowship. They must not eat together, or pray together! There are no inter marriages. There is no change of position producing a common sympathy. One class possesses - all; the other - nothing. The laws are made by one class and only known to the other by their partial severity. It is not a republic - this; it is a confederacy of tyrants, pure aristocratical despotism!
