The Emancipation Proclamation of 1863 declared that all the slaves in the Confederate states in rebellion against the Union were not free. It didn 't affect bondsmen in the loyal Border States though, out of fear of driving them away from the Union, nor did it affect some of the conquered territory in the South. This new change made it clear to both sides that this would be a fight to the finish, ruling out the chance of negotiation. While Lincolns Emancipation Proclamation delighted the abolitionists, is also infuriated many other citizens. They thought "Honest Abe." had lied to them, seeing as previously, at the onset of the war, Abraham Lincoln had stated that his intentions in the war to save the Union had nothing to do with freeing the

The reconstruction had started in 1865, by 1877 it really made its way to uniting the United States as a nation. With that being said, the reconstruction involved the states to come to an agreement about the rights and federalism, it was a debate that had been going on since the 1790s. The reconstruction had of course its benefits but it also had its downfalls, for example it didn’t protect slaves from white people torturing them and taking their lives. Lincoln, our once president died in the time where he was wanting to end the Civil War; for blacks and whites to be able to live with each other and not to worry if one is wanting to kill one another… There was a time where blacks could not even vote in their own country, very few people at
This historical study will define the moral leadership of Abraham Lincoln’s role as president during the Civil War. Lincoln’s role as an anti-Slavery supported in the north provided the necessary moral leadership to sustain a complex war involving the continued argument about the continued existence of the institution of slavery. In this context, Lincoln had not previously been a supporter of the northern abolitionist movements before becoming president, yet throughout the Civil War, he incrementally began to realize the political and moral implications of slavery as a dire threat to American freedoms. Lincoln’s opposition to slavery during his presidency defined a major change in U.S. history, which galvanized the North to challenge the dominance of pro-slavery in the South. This commitment to ending slavery formed the foundation of Lincoln’s role as a liberator of African-American slaves as a defining factor of the war.

**********Exploring the Joyce 's traumatizing childhood experiences************* Hello, folks!! As I have cited on Discussion 8 as the following: During his academic periods, he excelled through the University College Dublin, although his father was an alcoholic and eventually unemployed, which contributed to the emotional isolation of his mother.

According to the James Joyce Centre, Joyce wrote to a colleague to answer that "he believed his mother was killed by his father 's behavior" (James Joyce Centre, 2014).
One may say that these protests are unnecessary due to their insignificance towards the fact that Donald Trump is, and will, be the President of the United States in January. However, these are the very ideas which Martin Luther King Jr. and Henry Thoreau both denounced. We mustn’t look at the immediate outcome protests may cause, but the future outcomes they may cause. These protests will be looked upon in the future by historians, and they will be praised even more if Donald Trump’s presidency produces a negative outcome. Just how every vote in an election counts, such as the one the United States just experienced, every protester for a massive cause counts as

After the 1860 election, Lincoln made a firm public decision not to accept the expansion of slavery into the territories.
