BLACK HISTORY

July 30, 1863: President Lincoln issued “eye-for-eye” order, warning the Confederacy that the Union would shoot a rebel prisoner for every black prisoner shot and would condemn a rebel prisoner to a life of hard labor for every black prisoner sold into slavery. The order had restraining influence on the Confederate government, through individual commanders and soldiers continued to murder captured black soldiers. (Source: www.BlackFacts.com)
