The Emancipation Proclamation

Would You Do What Lincoln Did?

Series: What Would You Do?

By Elaine Landau

While the Union and Confederacy were engaged in a bloody war, President Abraham Lincoln signed an important document, which he had often agonized over—the Emancipation Proclamation. His decision freed all the slaves in those areas of the United States still in rebellion. The author asks the reader what they would do if faced with the important decisions that were made during the Civil War.
