Emancipation Proclamation:
Slave Narratives By: Sajana Sivakumar What is it? The Emacipation Proclamation was issued by our first president of America, Abraham Lincoln on January 1st, 1863. He stated that, " That all p[eople] held as slave within rebellious states are all henceforward shall be free". When the proclamation was declared, it was still limited to only the United States leaving slavery beyond the loyal borders. Eventhough the proclamation didn't end slavery all across America, many were overwelmed with the fact that the africans were set free, others didn't agree with the decision by the government. The proclamation given by Abraham Lincoln was bound with many different proclamations into a large book that is being held by the Department of the State.

The proclamation consisted during the civil war, though it didn't end slaveryit did end it on the date of December the 18th in 1865. The first reading of the Emancipation Procamation by the first president Abraham Lincoln. Who was Involved? Many were involved in the making of the Emancipation Proclamation. The government consisting of the republican party, the racial republicans and others thought that the consitution were protecting slavery in the States. In 1861, general Benjamin F. Butler who was placed in fort Monroe to help out with the cycle of getting slaves to freedom. Many slaves began to appear at the fort pleading for protection from the general. When Abraham Lincoln believed that the generals action was not needed. Later it was decided that Major General John C. Fermont would lead the slavery releases in Missouri. As you could see many were involved with the organizing of the proclamation including majorly around Abraham Lincoln and his associates around the governmental field.

Many including the two parties ( republican party and radial republicans ), Benjamin F. Butler, John C. Fermont, Union Army, The Navy,and many others that made the proclamation possible. " Time has changed from the worse to the better "
- Unknown How is it related to the book
" To Kill a Mockingbird " How all the information on the Emancipation Proclamation relates to the book " To Kill a Mockingbird " is that back in the 1930's the whites and blacks both had seperate worlds. Then, being a black mean't that you were worthless and had no decency to live, mainly making them slaves to whites. In the book, Jem's and Scout's father Atticus was working on a case of a black person. In those times if you were to do anything with a black person you were considered a black lover. But this is after the Emancipation Proclamation laws were given out and still no mercy or justice was given to those people. This book was written after the great depression. But as time went on many starting in Missouri were allowed freedom and most of the states. This is how the Emancipation Proclamation relates to the book, " To kill a Mockingbird ". Now that Slavery is over the world it is now a better place for everyone of different skin tones and religions. Thanks for watching my prezi on Emancipation Proclamation:
