Let Them Be Free

By Emily Beros
Civil War Reporter

African Americans are humans also. They are expected to follow the laws of American citizens but they are not considered to be a citizen or a human at all. We need to fight this war for their rights. We need to make the South understand that America is a place for everyone. America was built on the fact that people should not be discrimanated against for what they believe in and who they are. America should be a place were people should be noticed for what they stand for, not what color of their skin.
