During the past sixty years, our media, schools, and Hollywood entertainment culture have ridiculed these ideas. They say "How could Abraham Lincoln or anybody else claim America was "conceived in liberty" if nearly 700,000 Black Americans were owned as slaves when that Declaration was made?"
Abraham Lincoln studied that contradiction and explained it. In 1859 and 1860 Lincoln carefully read and studied many letters and other documents written by the "Founding Fathers" who wrote our Constitution and Declaration of Independence. On February 27, 1860, Lincoln explained those documents and his conclusions in long, 7,000 word speech at Cooper Union College in New York City. Roughly half of the "Founding Fathers" owned black slaves and grew up when slavery was normal in most of the world. However, Lincoln carefully documented that most of them knew slavery was wrong and could no longer be justified. Most personally freed their own slaves, and adopted various laws to provide for the "ultimate extinction" of slavery in America.
