Emancipation Proclamation : 

Emancipation Proclamation Two executive orders by Abraham Lincoln. First one given on September 22, 1862 and the second one on January 1, 1863. The Emancipation Proclamation declared the freedom of slaves in any state of the Confederate States of America. Although this stated slaves were free it did not actually free one slave. But this foreshadowed what was to become of the future in the United States on the issue of slavery. Top picture: displays the first reading of the rough draft of the Emancipation Proclamation. Bottom Picture: A map of the states where the institution of slavery existed. Red states are those states where Emancipation Proclamation went into affect the blue states were not affected by it because they did not succeed. Quit

Conclusions : 

Conclusions The Union won and the Union was preserved. Slavery ended in the South changing their way of life. The role of the Federal Government was strengthened with Union victory. Next step would be the Reconstruction Era. Quit
