INTRO to ALL LINCOLN PAGES:
Abe Lincoln: He may be the Greatest Democratically-Elected Leader ever!
More books have been written about Honest Abe than any other human being except Jesus Christ.
More statues have been erected to President Abraham Lincoln than any other person who ever lived . . . also excepting Jesus Christ!
Of thousands of Presidential Monuments in the USA dedicated to the 44 presidents, one-third are dedicated to Lincoln, one-third to the Founding Fathers, and one-third to all the rest.
On a world-wide stage, the difference is even more striking. The statues in memory to Lincoln exceed all other USA presidents combined, several times over.
In fact, the books and statues to Lincoln exceed the books & statures for the other top-10 American Presidents - combined:
Thus Lincoln failed in more quests than he succeeded, and lost more elections than he won, but when he finally won, he had Proven Principles upon which to lead and govern greatly!

Abraham Lincoln and Jesus Christ, Compared for Students, Disciples: The Mystery of Lincoln's Attraction!
Of whom 'Five-New-Books-Are-Written-About-Him-Every-Single-Day, with over 300-MILLION copies of His Words printed every year formally (in the western world) . . . (and 'mere-mortals boast of "BEST SELLING BOOKS that reach a Million or 10 in a "Life-Time?"). . .
. . . and there are 24,000-Plus new Christian Titles in the USA each year, not to mention the many "Top-Sellers" that attract new readers year after year, plus the "Classics" that have been selling for centuries . . .

. . . and this 24,000 new Christian Books is just from the USA alone!
ONLY GOD KNOWS!
Only God knows just how many Books are written about Jesus, how many copies of His Words, how many books about ministry, Church leadership, Christianity, etc., are written in the 230 nations of the world, especially with the greatest Christian growth taking place in Hispanic-Latino Nations, China, Africa, and Southeast Asia.
At least one such researcher places the figures at 100 new books about Jesus every day, 100,000 new titles per year and a billion copies of the Words of Jesus EVERY YEAR, world-wide,
Additionally, there has been 'A-New-Book-Written-About-Jesus-Every-Day . . . For-Over-A-THOUSAND-YEARS'; with more statues erected to 'His Honor' in every land, than anyone can tell . . . because they are neither counted, nor known, for multitude.
What does this have to do with Abraham Lincoln?

Abraham Lincoln, More Books about Him than Jesus Christ?

After Jesus Christ, however, there have been more books written about Abraham Lincoln than any other person who ever lived - 16,000 as of 2009:

After Jesus, there have been more seekers, writers readers and admirers about Abraham Lincoln - the humble, countrified, never-attending-grade-school - much less college!
Abraham Lincoln, somewhat 'ill-bred' (crude, some declared!) but born and raised in a 'three-sided-log cabin' (the fourth open to the elements, protected by a fire for the panthers and bears prowling at night;
Yet Lincoln has been studied, written and red about more than any other human being:
>> more than any King, Pharaoh, Caesar, or Czar; Thus by so many searching-&-researching Lincoln’s Life, everything knowable should already be known:
>> more than any Dictator, Emperor, President or Prime Minister;
>> more than any Shah, Ayatollah, Imam or Generals of Armies;
>> more than any Scientist, Philosopher, Musician, Sports or TV Star;
>> In fact - according to some research - there have been more books about Lincoln than all other US Presidents: combined!
If you inquire about Abraham Lincoln's faith, you will find every position of faith possible thus attributed: Angry-Atheist, Super-Skeptic, Antagonistically-Agnostic, Doubting-Deist, Trusting-Theist, Effervescent-Evangelical, Fervently-Faithful . . . and ALL POSITIONS have a dozen personal "quotes" to prove their particular point of view.

The "Second Consfiscation Act", 1862
Paving the Way for the Emancipation Proclamation of 1-1-1863
Almost from the beginning of his administration, Lincoln was pressured by abolitionists and radical Republicans to issue an Emancipation Proclamation. In principle, Lincoln approved, but he postponed action against slavery until he believed he had wider support from the American Public.
The passage of the Second Confiscation Act by Congress on July 17, 1862, which freed the slaves of everyone in rebellion against the government, provided the desired signal. Not only had Congress relieved the Administration of considerable strain with its limited initiative on emancipation, it demonstrated an increasing public abhorrence toward slavery.
Lincoln had already drafted what he termed his "Preliminary Proclamation." He read his initial draft of the Emancipation Proclamation to Secretaries William H. Seward and Gideon Welles on July 13, 1862. For a moment, both Secretaries were speechless. Quickly collecting his thoughts, Seward said something about anarchy in the South and possible foreign intervention, but with Welles apparently too confused to respond, Lincoln let the matter drop.

Nine days later, on July 22, Lincoln raised the issue in a regularly scheduled Cabinet meeting. The reaction was mixed. Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton, correctly interpreting the Proclamation as a military measure designed both to deprive the Confederacy of slave labor and bring additional men into the Union Army, advocated its immediate release.
Treasury Secretary Salmon P. Chase was equally supportive, but Montgomery Blair, the Postmaster General, foresaw defeat in the fall elections. Attorney General Edward Bates, a conservative, opposed civil and political equality for Blacks but gave his qualified support. Fortunately, President Lincoln only wanted the advice of his Cabinet on the style of the Proclamation, not its substance. The course was set.
The Cabinet meeting of September 22, 1862, resulted in the political and literary refinement of the July draft, and on January 1, 1863, Lincoln composed the final Emancipation Proclamation. It was the crowning achievement of his administration.
The original autograph was lost in the Chicago fire of 1871. Surviving photographs of the document show it primarily in Lincoln's own hand. The superscription and ending are in the hand of a clerk, and the printed insertions are from the September draft.
