On this day in 1863, Abraham Lincoln signs the Emancipation
Proclamation. Attempting to stitch together a nation mired in
a bloody civil war, Abraham Lincoln made a last-ditch, but
carefully calculated, decision regarding the institution of
slavery in America. The Proclamation ordered the freedom
of all slaves in ten states.

The National Day of Prayer was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of
Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. In 1988,
the law was unanimously amended by both the House and the Senate
and signed into law by President Ronald Reagan on Thursday, May 5,
1988, designating the first Thursday of May as a day of national prayer
and every president since 1952 has signed a National Day of Prayer
proclamation.
