Lincoln abhorred slavery, declaring that “there can be no moral right in connection with one man’s making a slave of another.” He believed that blacks were entitled to the natural rights of “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” as enumerated in the Declaration of Independence and to the fruits of their own labor. Lincoln, however, was no abolitionist demanding an immediate end to slavery
