Born in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, Edward W. Blyden (1832–1912) traveled to the United States, then in 1850 settled in Liberia, where he was principal of Alexander High School, a Presbyterian minister, and the editor of The Liberia Herald. He was an active proponent of immigration to Africa and a severe critic of the influence of Christianity and European education on the continent. Between 1871 and 1873 Blyden lived in Freetown, Sierra Leone, where he edited the journal Negro. He returned to Liberia in 1874 and ran unsuccessfully for president in 1885.

On July 22, a blisteringly hot summer day in Washington, Lincoln called his Cabinet together and told them that he had reached a momentous decision. A President who customarily polled his Cabinet on all issues of public policy, and then deferred to their collective wisdom, he bluntly told them this time that he would entertain no opposition or debate on the main point. He had already made up his mind. Then he unfolded some hand-written papers and slowly read aloud a sketchily composed preliminary order freeing slaves in the rebellious states. No one present dissented. But Secretary of State Seward expressed a sensible concern. With the war going so badly, he worried, would not most Americans regard an emancipation announcement be as "a cry for help—our last shriek on the retreat?" Seward proposed postponing the Proclamation until the Union could win a victory on the battlefield. Reluctantly, Lincoln conceded the wisdom in Seward's suggestion. But he must have felt enormous frustration. His top commander in the East, General George B.
