The Emancipation Proclamation remains one of the most misunderstood and controversial events of the American Civil War. Many today still debate its legality and what it accomplished. Did Lincoln truly believe in the document, or was it simply a war measure meant to end the war quicker? What did the Emancipation Proclamation do and what did it mean?

  1. An excellent lecture. Perhaps one of the best historical lectures I have heard. It was supported by in-depth research. It was well written and excellently given. A great tribute to an essential part of American history and the liberty of all people!
