NUMBER:6921
AUTHOR:Robert Charles Winthrop (1809–1894)
QUOTATION:  Slavery is but half abolished, emancipation is but half completed, while millions of freemen with votes in their hands are left without education. Justice to them, the welfare of the States in which they live, the safety of the whole Republic, the dignity of the elective franchise,—all alike demand that the still remaining bonds of
ignorance shall be unloosed and broken, and the minds as well as the bodies of the emancipated go free.
ATTRIBUTION:Yorktown Oration, 1881.
