Question and answer
Why did Lincoln say, "I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the institution of slavery in the states where it exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no

He said that line in his first Innaugural address March 4, 1861. He obviously wasn't known for being a leader for equal human rights. Thanks.
