Emancipation Proclamation

Post by 89whiteandnerdy on Sun Dec 30, 2007 11:18 pm

Let's discuss this. What were the reasons for this proclamation? What were its ramifications? Was it right or wrong, and was it effective?

I believe that it ratified the right things. I believe that it had an great effect. If I lived then, I think that I might of been not so fond of it, but now that we can look back on it, I think that it had a positive impact on human nature.

Supposedly to end slavery. For Lincoln it was to give him more support and pretend like the war was against slavery.
It was right to try to end slavery. However the motive and means was wrong. If Lincoln really was trying to end slavery why did it not include freeing slaves in the Northern States.

It was not initially successful. As far as freeing slaves go. The outward motive seems to have been successful in the end.
It was very successful in turning the war "of Northern aggression" Twisted Evil into a war against slavery. In fact most history books teach that and most Northerners believe it. So for Lincoln it was extremely successful.

That good enough for you Whiteandnerdy? bounce

To my knowledge, and correct me if I'm wrong I may be thinking of something else, but to my knowledge the emancipation proclamation only freed slaves in Southern states. The slave owners in the north were allowed to keep any slaves they had. The laws restricted us in the south, but left Lincoln's precious northern states alone. The emancipation proclamation was not, in my opinion, good. It's motives were that of selfishness, I believe, on Lincoln's part, and it was relatively ineffective. Why couldn't America just have waited to revolt until England had made the law that not only outlawed slavery, but freed every slave in the entire empire. Too bad for them, I guess. Laughing
