"I barely suggest, for your private consideration, whether some of the colored people may not be let in--as, for instance, the very intelligent,  and especially those who have fought gallantly in our ranks.  They would probably help, in some trying time to come, to keep the jewel of liberty within the family of freedom." -Abraham Lincoln [ letter  to Gov. Michael Hahn]
