-- Al Bartell U.S. Public Policy Leader
FOR U.S. SENATE
TO THE SEA"
TO READ THE EMANCIPATION PROCLAMATION
IN THIRTEEN GEORGIA CITIES
The Bartell for U.S. Senate campaign has announced its stand for America by launching a 21st century "America's March To The Sea" during the month of October 2020.
"We will never, ever, ever surrender the future of the United States of America to forces of cultural separation." -- Al Bartell
Reminiscent of the original “Sherman’s March to the Sea”, the intention of the Bartell Campaign “March To The Sea” is to re-presence Georgians -- and America -- to the intent and language of the Emancipation Proclamation (Presidential Executive Order 95) -- which Sherman’s March To The Sea fulfilled upon.
The Emancipation Proclamation did more than free 3.5 million of America’s blacks from slavery. It specifically addressed the protection of black Americans during the coming days. Particularly, the Emancipation Proclamation prohibited violence against black Americans -- newly freed -- by the police, the military, or any others. That prohibition against violence included the prohibition of punishment of black Americans from the court system, or “law of the land” of that time -- for being free, by law.
In remembrance of the 13th Amendment, which ensured black Americans freedom from slavery/prohibition from violence in perpetuity, U.S. Senate Candidate Al Bartell and the Bartell for U.S. Senate campaign will be travelling to 13 cities in Georgia, starting Oct. 17, 2020.
At each of the thirteen cities, U.S. Senate Candidate Bartell will read the Emancipation Proclamation on the steps leading into City Hall, with an advance courtesy communication being extended to each Mayor and City Council.
The general public and the media are being welcomed to attend and cover each reading, with social distancing protocols being practiced. U.S. Senate Candidate Bartell will be available for questions and comments. The Bartell for U.S. Senate campaign intends to live-stream each event on Facebook and YouTube, as conditions permit.
The thirteen cities of “America’s March To The Sea” are: Atlanta; Dalton, Kennesaw, and Marietta; Jonesboro, McDonough, Forsyth, and Macon; Milledgeville, Dublin, and Soperton; Metter and Savannah. (Scroll down to see the detailed schedule for each event.
From Georgia U.S. Senate Candidate Al Bartell On The Prohibition Of Violence Against Black America:
“Sherman’s ‘March To The Sea’ in Georgia was less about saving the Union than it was about ensuring the protection of the newly freed black Americans: it fulfilled the intent of the Emancipation Proclamation.
"Many of us have forgotten this vital history, especially in our current situation of violence against black Americans.
“That’s why I announced earlier in my campaign -- before COVID -- and now again -- that I will be reading the Emancipation Proclamation across the state of Georgia.
“Additionally, the 13th Amendment of the United States Constitution ensures black Americans, in perpetuity, freedom from slavery -- and protection from violence.
"That has been the case since the Emancipation Proclamation -- two years before Sherman’s March To The Sea -- and since the 13th Amendment was ratified, nearly 155 years ago.
“We're now taking a stand for Georgia, the Southeast region of the nation, and the United States of America -- that people have the freedom to be different without being separate, or disconnected -- or at risk for their lives.”
