Did President Lincoln Really Want to Set Up a Colony for Former Slaves?

Yes, President Lincoln had suggestions for building colonies outside the United States for freed slaves. President Lincoln originally wanted the emancipation of slaves to be gradual. He wanted to offer southern farmers financial incentives in exchange for freeing their slaves and had plans in mind to send these freed slaves to new colonies, designed for their new lives outside the United States. The Civil War broke out in 1862. Suellen Ocean is the author of the Civil War Era Historic Romance, Black Pansy.
