Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation declared freedom for all slaves in the rebelling states of the South. But those states were under Confederate rule, so in reality no slaves were set free. Many did not even know about the document until years later. With simple clarity, author Carin T. Ford explains the history of slavery in America and how it finally came to an end. Learning about the political and social climate surrounding the Civil War, readers will come to understand why emancipation did not happen easily or quickly. Key quotes and anecdotes bring this period of history to life.
