Known as the bloodiest single-day battle in American History, the Battle of Antietam took place at Antietam creek in Maryland. Strategic plan unveiled and outnumbered, things didn’t start off smoothly for General Robert E. Lee and the Confederate army; yet, even with a copy of the enemy’s plan and a two-to-one advantage, did things work out for Union! With one side disadvantaged and the other wasting their advantages, the battle stayed undecided for hours- that is until violent attacks to General Lee’s troop had the Confederate army retreating. Although, the Battle of Antietam does not have a clear victorious side, the Union declared it as a victory and used the victory to justify the “Emancipation Proclamation”

On January 1, 1863, the final Emancipation Proclamation was issued and it said “that all persons held as slaves” shall be free.
The Declaration of Independence acts as the American Colonies’ formal set of grievances against the King of England. Before citing the injustices experienced, the statement begins with a formal introduction contending that the people have the right to create their own government when necessary. Following is a more philosophical assertion which argues that when a state begins to harm the given rights of the population, it is completely justifiable to begin a revolution to overthrow the subjugator. Next comes the list of complaints directed at the Crown, which range from the abolition of American charters to the dissolution of the Representative Houses. Finally, it concludes with a denunciation of the situation and announce the United States
Americans have always been curious to improve the freed world by expanding upon necessary, fundamental rights to create happiness in the end, for all men. Proposed on September 22, 1862, and put into effect on January 1, 1863, the Emancipation Proclamation freed all slaves in all rebellious states and changed the meaning of the Civil War away from simply reuniting the Union. The Battle of Antietam, a Union victory, served as ammunition for this proposition to avoid thoughts of creating the Proclamation out of desperation. The most important political turning point for the North winning the war was the Emancipation Proclamation because it was brave, critical, and tactical.

The Civil War ended in 1865 leaving the south disappointed and angry. The Union decided to help the south get back on their feet and have equal rights.

There is some debate on whether or not the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863 truly freed the slaves of the south. There is evidence proving that the proclamation in fact did not actually emancipate slaves like it should have according to the document. Full emancipation did not come until after the end of the Civil War. Lincoln used the Emancipation Proclamation as a war tactic against the south. And although it claims to free the slaves immediately, Lincoln did not have that kind of power over the south.

General George McClellan continually frustrated Lincoln with his unwillingness to advance, and when McClellan failed to see Robert Lee’s retreating Confederate Army in the outcome of the Union victory at Antietam in September 1862.

Allen Guelzo and Vincent Harding approached Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation and the eventual abolition of slavery from two very different viewpoints. The major disagreement between them is whether the slaves freed themselves, or Abraham Lincoln and his Emancipation Proclamation freed them. Harding argued the former view, Guelzo took the later. When these essays are compared side by side Guelzo’s is stronger because, unlike Harding, he was able to keep his own views of American race relations out of the essay and presented an argument that was based on more than emotion.

¨Freedom means you are unobstructed in living your life as you choose. Anything less is a form of slavery.¨ This is similar to Frederick Douglass because he lived his most of his life in slavery and then after slavery ended he chose to live his life the way he wanted.

Somebody once remarked, “No man is good enough to govern another man without the other's consent” (“Abraham Lincoln Quotes"). At the initial view, the Civil War was going to be won by the South.
