1. Compare and Contrast the Alexander s Emancipation Manifesto with Lincoln s Emancipa- tion Proclamation, and use the historical context of the times to interpret the documents. There are similarities and differences between the Alexander s Emancipation Manifesto and Lincoln s Emancipation Proclamation. The purpose of the documents is similar almost iden- tical to one another. However, the aftermath and the historical context of the each documents dif- fered a little. The Emancipation Proclamation was issued by President Abraham Lincoln on January 1, 1863. This document directly freed all the slaves, who were mostly residing in the southern part of the United States. It was hard to get rid of the slavery because the main source of the economy in America at that time was agriculture. The more workers you had, the more benefits and har- vests you got out of those workers. Slaves tend to have no rights, but just to work for their owner.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
