In 1862, the American Civil War was underway, actively tearing the United States apart. At the start of the war, President Abraham Lincoln's main goal was preserving the Union, but he was now ready to make a stand on slavery. The Emancipation Proclamation was one of the most important documents of its time, but its contents can be confusing. This volume gives readers context for the proclamation, as well as explains what it says and its results, in clear language appropriate for those reading below level and those looking to the book for review.<\P>
