I'm back again. :)
I'm doing a free-response question.
#5) "I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races." How can this 1858 statement of Abraham Lincoln be reconciled with his 1862 Emancipation Proclamation?
This is what I have so far:
When he was always asked by other people about the war he said that he was doing it for the Union and not for the abolition of slavery. He saw that in order to maintain the Union was to abolish slavery. Also, he believed that if they if he could abolish slavery, Great Britain and France would stop helping the Confederacy.
This when you come in place.:p
Anything else that I could use? or anything else to write?
I need to write about a 5 paragraph essay.
Thank you for your help :)
