Causes of the Emancipation Proclimation

Consequences of the Emancipation Proclimation

Slavery became the true problem of the Civil WarThe North was winning the war following GettysburgTo assert dominance over the country even though it probably wouldn't be followed by southernersLincoln wanted the war do be over and this would shorten the length

At the begining Lincoln's Purpose was to preserve the Union, One of Lincoln's most famous quotes expresses this, "If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that."As the war progressed Lincoln's outlook altered due to the South losing the advantage they had obtained. The North took this advantage and magnified it. The Emancipation and Sherman are great examples of how Lincoln utilized his lead to thrust himself to victory.

Declared that all slaves from states of rebellion were freeConvinced border states to be slave-freeStopped all foreign involvement in any form for this war

These states were key to the Norths victory, not only due to their location, but also due to their production and man-powerBorder States provided Lincoln with large armies and a lot of factory workers

Focus of the War

Border States

African American Role

Following the Emancipation Proclimation, African American's rights were greatly increased. The first fully "Colored" regiment was created. This showed that everyone could play a role in the war no matter what race.

The books written by Fredrick Douglass were strong propaganda towards the abolition of slavery. He wrote an autobiography that showed how he was treated and the harshness of a slaves life.
