Chartered in 1854, Lincoln University of Pennsylvania was the first institution founded for the purpose of offering higher education to African American males. President Adams asserts that the greatest literature embodies "the noble sentiments of freedom and of universal charity." He advocates, "as a work of noble philanthropy, the education of the African." Of the many reasons provided for such an effort, "We will not omit to name the service rendered by the black man to our government in the time of the Rebellion."
