Once and For All, Was it the Democrats or Republicans That Freed the Slaves?

A year or two ago, I ran across the following photograph on Twitter. When I posted it on Fakebook (formerly Facebook) it was in the middle of a huge effort to correct what I see as an enormous wrong to our Black Community, which was the perpetuation of the illusionary tale that it was the Democratic Party that freed the slaves (Abraham Lincoln was a Republican). I can remember the crying and soul searching being done on the part of loyal Democrat Party Liberals who were shocked with this revelation.
