Kindred todd did not drink, and in any case this was not a night for him to celebrate.
Military dispatches from Murfreesboro, Tenn. The Fifteenth Wisconsin lost seven captains. There never was such a shambling, half-and-half set of incapables collected in one government before or since the world began. Nobody believes in him any more.

While there, he became captivated by the presence of Abraham Lincoln Library of Congress. But now there was the carnage at Murfreesboro, known at the moment only to the men fighting and dying there, to Secretary of War Edwin M.
All evening, December 31, Lincoln had been working on the final draft of his Emancipation Proclamation, which had been the subject of a cabinet meeting that same morning at 10, when he presented the document for final approval.
The changes suggested by Chase and others were slight. The major disagreements had been resolved by September 22, when Lincoln announced that the emancipation of slaves would be effective January 1, Lincoln wrote slowly and painstakingly, with little facility in his fingers and wrist.
An inkblot or a misspelled word caused him to discard the paper and begin again. The pistol cracks and rifle volleys outside his window mocked the shots fired in fury and terror a thousand miles away in Tennessee. And for every shot that hit its mark, a young soldier lost a life or a limb.
It was not a night conducive to sleep or concentration. The very document under hand seemed to waver and tremble, disturbed by the sounds of gunfire. Horace Greeley, Republican radicals and abolitionists had been begging Lincoln to free the slaves for as long as he had been in office.

The table, desks, chairs, the slant-top escritoire with its pigeonholes and bookshelves in the southeast corner, all were as cluttered as in the Springfield office of Lincoln and Herndon, although here the maids swept and dusted.
There was plenty of room to pace. He could not stop thinking about the woman who had come to call on him the day before: He made a long pilgrimage from Springfield to Farmington to visit Sarah weeks before his inauguration, and the parting had been difficult, tearful.
There William Seward would review the document and have it copied for the press before midday, when both men would sign it. When he had dressed for the formal reception, Lincoln went to fetch Mary. She wore a black velvet dress with lozenge trimming at the waist, diamond earrings and necklace, and a black shawl around her head.
This would be her first public reception since the burial of their year-old son Willie, who had died of typhus in February The Lincolns were racked by guilt at the thought that the foul air of the canal that flowed behind the White House had killed the boy.
Of all their sons Robert, Edward, Willie and Tad Willie had been the favorite, and Mary had not recovered from the shock.
