THE EMANCIPATION PROCLAMATION

THE EMANCIPATION PROCLAMATION

Political Ploy or Courageous Gamble?

Sources present several statements by Lincoln that show what and why he was thinking at various times regarding emancipation. One secondary source criticizes the Proclamation for failing to condemn slavery on moral grounds; the other views the Proclamation as having doomed slavery in the long run. Concluding exercises have students consider questions such as "How important was the Emancipation Proclamation to efforts to end slavery?"
