Transcript of Emancipation Proclamation Project

Works Cited North vs. South Opinions Important Dates Effects Cont. Causes Slaves contributed to the initiation of the Emancipation Proclamation from the start of the war, as many crossed the threshold of the battle lines into the Union army camps.
With these fugitive slaves on hand, the Union army was unsure of whether they should return the slaves to the Confederates or not - being that the slaves were responsible for building forts and other armaments for the Confederate army.

September 17, 1862: The Union (northern states) wins the Battle of Antietam. This was an extremely important battle because it gave President Lincoln the window of opportunity to launch the preliminary Emancipation Proclamation on the Confederates ("Civil War Trust").

January 1, 1863: The Emancipation Proclamation is passed after the Confederates refuse to rejoin the Union and stop asking for foreign military assistance ("Civil War Trust"). -The Emancipation Proclamation gave slaves the opportunity and drive to gain their freedom (Behrend).
-Thousands of slaves began to fight against the Confederacy, who had made their lives so miserable (Behrend).

Kristen Hasse The Emancipation Proclamation The American Civil War North Causes Continued Effects A war between the North and South (Union vs. Confederates) of the United States ("American Civil War").
During this time period there were several things that the North and South differed in:
Economy Basis:
North=manufacturing/industry, South=agriculture
North disliked the concept from the very beginning, South heavily relied on it, couldn't see a life without it ("American Civil War")
The Fugitive Slave Law of 1850 declared that fleeing slaves could not testify on their own behalf and they were denied a jury trial(slave hunters were now allowed in the North). Any Northerners who helped slaves trying to escape received fines and jail time ("American Civil War")
The Kansas- Nebraska Act, passed in 1854, which established the concept of popular sovereignty (right to vote whether a state should or should not be slave based)("American Civil War"). -The Emancipation Proclamation gave the Northerners the boost they needed to fight until the end and not give up (Behrend).
-Lincoln showed the South that he was not a complete abolitionist by not freeing all the slaves immediately. It was done in a more gradual way, giving the Confederate states time to rethink their situation and get used to life without slaves (Behrend).
-The Emancipation Proclamation helped lay the groundwork for the 13th Amendment, which abolished slavery in the United States (Behrend). www.loc.gov/rr/program/bib/ourdocs/Images/proclamation.jpg img.geocaching.com/track/large/fbdf237d-644b-4d2d-ac37-c1defdf415f9.jpg Southern states were full of rage ("Civil War Trust").
Saw it as an attack on the one thing that provided them with a steady economy ("Civil War Trust").
Feared that the North would become in full control of United States ("Civil War Trust").
Were already behind in terms of advancement, didn't want to go back to square one ("Civil War Trust"). Wanted to save the Union ("Civil War Trust").
Had disliked the concept of slavery from the very beginning ("Civil War Trust").
Because slavery was already banned in the Northern States, the citizens there were not disrupted at all in term of production ("Civil War Trust").
Freed slaves meant more people seeking jobs=stronger economy ("Civil War Trust"). Problems/Limitations of the Document Lincoln wanted to save the Union by regaining control of the rebellious southern states (Behrend).
Prior to Lincoln's election in 1860, the Confederate states intended to secede from the Union for the reason that their economy majorly depended on slavery (Behrend).
Lincoln hoped that blacks would join the Union and become inspired to fight against the people who had dealt them unfair treatment. ("Emancipation Proclamation (1863)"). Slaves would only be freed in the Confederate states ("Emancipation Proclamation"(1863)").
Any slaves living in the border states or states conquered already by the Union would not be freed ("Emancipation Proclamation (1863)").
The freeing of slaves depended solely on a Union victory: Lincoln needed to wait for the right moment ("Emancipation Proclamation (1863)"). -Before issuing the Proclamation of Emancipation, Lincoln first issued the Preliminary Emancipation Proclamation, giving the states that were threatening to secede a chance to rethink the situation ("Emancipation Proclamation (1863)").
-President Lincoln issued the Proclamation to:
-save the union
-to keep England and France out of the United States ("Emancipation Proclamation (1863))
-Important to remember that the document did not put an end to slavery, just another attempt to secure the control of the Confederacy (Emancipation Proclamation (1863)). www.phschool.com/curriculum_support/taks/images/TANU5_ques8.jpg freedomweek.files.wordpress.com/2011/02/410_13thamendment_hand.gif images.fineartamerica.com/images-medium-large/the-battle-of-antietam-granger.jpg collaborationnation.wikispaces.com/file/view/civil_war_soldiers_union_confederate.gif/143645901/civil_war_soldiers-union_confederate.gif 4.bp.blogspot.com/ift9LKM2yXc/UH1in9qG8I/AAAAAAAABe8/Yyb3P97AuXo/s1600/fsa.jpg charlespaolino.files.wordpress.com/2013/03/a-lincoln-5.jpg springfieldmuseums.org/the_museums/fine_arts/collection/view/288_freedom_to_the_slaves_proclaimed_january_1st_1863_by_abraham_lincoln_president_of_the_united_states_proclaim_liberty_throughout_all_the_land_unto_all_the_inhabitants_thereof Background Information allposters.com/-sp/Abraham-Lincoln-and-Freed-African-American-Slave-Statue-Commemorating-Emancipation-Proclamation-Posters_i4241370_.htm
