    "This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice."

    this is an opinion, there are other people that might think that the liberation of slaves is bad event e.g. farmers, the wealthy ect. (in that time period)

    You can have a look at this page for some examples: http://www.auburn.edu/~murraba/fact.html Here I reproduce some part of that page for you: According to Webster's Dictionary a fact is "anything that is done or happens; anything actually existent; any statement strictly true; truth; reality." " Three examples of facts that are concrete and that could be documented include: [...] Whereas an opinion is defined as "indicating a belief, view, sentiment, conception." " Here comes another helpful hint from another website that I am directly quoting for you: " To see if something is a fact, ask yourself, “Can this statement be proved? To check for opinions, ask yourself, “Does this tell a thought or feeling?” “Would the statement be true all of the time?” Look for clue words such as feel, believe, always, never, none, most, least, best, and worst "
