As we celebrate the inauguration of President Barack Obama on January 21, 2013 and honor the many contributions of Dr. Martin Luther King to the Civil Rights movement in the 1960s, let us also remember the contributions of President Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War soldiers to the abolitionist movement in the 1860s. As Orrin L. Gatchell, a private in the Excelsior Brigade of the Union Army, wrote on March 30, 1864, “And today I am fully convinced that right will triumph in this struggle and that our government will be yet based on the broad principles of freedom to all beneath our flag.” Let Freedom Ring.
