Transcript of Emancipation Proclamation

Anastazia Lipani and Sofia Salcedo The Emancipation Proclamation What is the Emancipation
Proclamation? Hurt the agriculture economy in the South due to the mass number of slaves that left the plantations.
Rallied the Union Army together, and gave them even more of a reason to fight.
The South lost the support of British and French Empire. Immediate Effects on the United States... Battle of Antietam - turning point where Union held off Confederates in Maryland
- Lincoln would only present this knowing Union had good chance in winning the war
Needed to do something to harm the south- slaves = labor and supported economy
Did not want Britain or France to join the conflict What caused Lincoln to write it? Works Cited A short speech given by President Abraham Lincoln on January 1, 1863
African Americans would now be accepted into the Union Army and Navy
It declared that all people previously held as slaves would be made free once the Union Army won the war. Slaves Reactions Foreign Nation Reactions Long-Term Effects.... Slaves:
Most did not hear about it right away.
Many went on to join army
-180,000 African Americans went on to serve in the army
- 18,000 served in the navy
Gave slaves hope
Slaves fled to Union lines Short Video Foreign Nations:
Britain and France abolished slavery
War became a war based on slavery due to Proclamation
Now they could never support South (slavery supporters) --> It would be a contradiction

Denied Idea of aiding in allying with South
Long Term Effects Cont.... Some Political Cartoons.... After the civil war African Americans were not seen as equals. Martin Luther King Jr. spoke out against the prominent segregation in an effort to give African Americans true equality. Only a brave few stood up against the denigrating actions of the white people.
One of the most famous was Rosa Parks. The Emancipation Proclamation opened the doors for African Americans..... African Americans ability to play alongside white people in sports, Jackie Robinson. Political Cartoon from "Southern Illustrated News" depicts Lincoln as himself before the Emancipation Proclamation and then as the devil after it. They felt their whole way of life being threatened. Northerners:
Overjoyed, many celebrated, although, some
worried slaves would take over
all the work in North
Radical republicans said he did not do enough
Democrats said he did too much
Worried people that border states would secede now that President openly opposed slavery. People's Reactions
North vs. South VS. Southerners:
Jefferson Davis was angry
Attacked Lincoln and Proclamation saying he had no right and did it to cause slave revolts
People worried it would incite slave rebellions
Thought "I told you so" because they always suspected Lincoln to be against slavery In favor of Lincoln, this cartoon depicts a slave being handed or shown the Emancipation Proclamation in which he is grateful and excited to serve in the army. In the background there is a Confederate and the slave is saying how Lincoln beat him. Adalbert J. Vlock's anti emancipation proclamation political cartoon (1863) shows Lincoln's inkwell being held by the devil, his foot on the constitution, and that he glorified John Brown and the Haiti slave revolt. In this cartoon a "Confederate" cat named Jeff (on his collar) represents Confederate President Jefferson Davis attempting to disturb the "Union" cat. A third cat appears to help the Union cat, with the word "Contraband" on its collar. The contraband cat strategically stands next to the bottle of "The Great Remedy" which symbolizes the African Americans, slaves, and Emancipation Proclamation as the remedy that will help the Union win the war.
