The War Effort At Home

Chapter 18 section3

  • Although Lincoln personally hated slavery. The purpose of the war, he said, “is to save the Union and is not either it save or to destroy slavery.”
emancipation proclamation
Emancipation Proclamation
  • By the summer of 1862, Lincoln’s emancipation plan was ready. When the Union turned back Lee’s troops at the Battle of Antietam, Lincoln saw his chance. On September 22, 1862, he issued a warning to the Confederates: Unless they returned to the Union by January 1, 1863, he would free their slaves. The Confederacy ignored the warning.

  • Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation of 1863 freed all the slaves in the Confederate states. The proclamation won European support for the Union and gave the benefit of 186,000 African Americans soldiers.
