MARSHALL?- Civil War buff and Southwest Minnesota State University Economics Professor Gerry Toland was the keynote speaker for the spring session kickoff of Senior College Thursday afternoon at SMSU. In honor of President Abraham Lincoln's birthday Feb. 12 and the 150th anniversary of the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation, which was signed Jan. 1, 1863, Toland discussed Lincoln's public letter to a Union rally in 1863. He said the letter was critical to the public's acceptance of the Emancipation Proclamation, which was an order to free the slaves.
