ANSWER: President​ ​Lincoln​ ​signed​ ​and​ ​issued​ ​this​ ​document​ ​after​ ​the​ ​war​ ​on​ ​January​ ​1st​ ​1863.​ ​This​ ​document​ ​did​ ​capture​ ​the​ ​hearts​ ​and immigration​ ​of​ ​millions​ ​of​ ​Americans​ ​and​ ​fundamentally​ ​transformed​ ​the​ ​character​ ​of​ ​war. Part​ ​B How​ ​does​ ​the​ ​document​ ​define​ ​the​ ​areas​ ​where​ ​slaves​ ​were​ ​to​ ​be​ ​freed? ANSWER: The​ ​proclamation​ ​declared​ ​"that​ ​all​ ​persons​ ​held​ ​as​ ​slaves"​ ​within​ ​the​ ​rebellious​ ​states​ ​"are,​ ​and​ ​henceforward​ ​shall​ ​be​ ​free.”​ ​All slaves​ ​were​ ​to​ ​be​ ​freed​ ​throughout​ ​the​ ​United​ ​States​ ​of​ ​America. Part​ ​C What​ ​specific​ ​language​ ​in​ ​the​ ​document​ ​indicates​ ​that​ ​the​ ​freeing​ ​of​ ​slaves​ ​is​ ​partly​ ​for​ ​military​ ​reasons? ANSWER: ​ ​The​ ​Emancipation,​ ​it​ ​didn't​ ​immediately​ ​free​ ​the​ ​slaves.​ ​SO,​ ​When​ ​the​ ​Civil​ ​War​ ​started​ ​in​ ​1861-1865,​ ​Lincoln​ ​had​ ​prioritized​ ​the union​ ​over​ ​his​ ​freeing​ ​of​ ​the​ ​slaves.​ ​ ​In​ ​1862,​ ​thousands​ ​of​ ​slaves​ ​fled​ ​the​ ​south​ ​and​ ​rebellious​ ​states​ ​to​ ​join​ ​the​ ​Northern​ ​Army. When​ ​slaves​ ​joined​ ​the​ ​northern​ ​army​ ​in​ ​the​ ​free​ ​northern​ ​states,​ ​they​ ​became​ ​a​ ​free​ ​man​ ​and​ ​had​ ​quarters​ ​to​ ​live​ ​in.​ ​Lincoln​ ​was then​ ​convinced​ ​that​ ​what​ ​he​ ​had​ ​done​ ​in​ ​previous​ ​years​ ​had​ ​turned​ ​into​ ​a​ ​military​ ​strategy. Part​ ​D What​ ​specific​ ​language​ ​in​ ​the​ ​document​ ​indicates​ ​that​ ​the​ ​freeing​ ​of​ ​slaves​ ​is​ ​for​ ​moral​ ​reasons? ANSWER: The​ ​specific​ ​language​ ​in​ ​the​ ​document​ ​that​ ​indicated​ ​the​ ​freeing​ ​of​ ​slaves​ ​is​ ​for​ ​moral​ ​reasons​ ​is​ ​“It​ ​added​ ​moral​ ​force​ ​to​ ​the​ ​Union cause​ ​and​ ​strengthened​ ​the​ ​Union​ ​both​ ​militarily​ ​and​ ​politically.​ ​As​ ​a​ ​milestone​ ​along​ ​the​ ​road​ ​to​ ​slavery’s​ ​final​ ​destruction,​ ​the Emancipation​ ​Proclamation​ ​has​ ​assumed​ ​a​ ​place​ ​among​ ​the​ ​great​ ​documents​ ​of​ ​human​ ​freedom.” Part​ ​E What​ ​surprises​ ​you​ ​about​ ​the​ ​text? ANSWER: What​ ​surprises​ ​me​ ​about​ ​the​ ​text​ ​is​ ​that​ ​the​ ​slaves​ ​weren’t​ ​completely​ ​free. Part​ ​F If​ ​you​ ​could​ ​pick​ ​one​ ​sentence​ ​from​ ​the​ ​Emancipation​ ​Proclamation​ ​that​ ​best​ ​characterizes​ ​the​ ​document,​ ​what​ ​would​ ​it​ ​be? Explain​ ​your​ ​choice. ANSWER: If​ ​I​ ​could​ ​pick​ ​one​ ​sentence​ ​from​ ​the​ ​Emancipation​ ​Proclamation​ ​that​ ​best​ ​characterizes​ ​the​ ​document​ ​it​ ​would​ ​be​ ​“that​ ​all persons​ ​held​ ​as​ ​slaves​ ​within​ ​the​ ​rebellious​ ​states​ ​are​ ​henceforward​ ​shall​ ​be​ ​free.” Task​ ​2 Events​ ​Fueling​ ​the​ ​Civil​ ​War Consider​ ​the​ ​events​ ​that​ ​led​ ​to​ ​the​ ​Civil​ ​War​ ​and​ ​fueled​ ​the​ ​bitterness​ ​between​ ​the​ ​North​ ​and​ ​South​ ​before​ ​and​ ​during the​ ​war.

Slavery,​ ​states’​ ​rights,​ ​and​ ​regional​ ​economics​ ​are​ ​all​ ​disputed​ ​causes. What​ ​do​ ​you​ ​think​ ​caused​ ​the​ ​Civil​ ​War?​ ​Write​ ​a​ ​three-​ ​to​ ​four-paragraph​ ​essay​​ ​opinion​ ​piece​ ​that explains​ ​your​ ​ideas​. Use​ ​the​ ​events​ ​and​ ​your​ ​notes​ ​from​ ​the​ ​table​ ​above​ ​to​ ​support​ ​your​ ​opinion.​ ​You​ ​may​ ​also​ ​reference​ ​other​ ​events​ ​that took​ ​place​ ​during​ ​or​ ​after​ ​the​ ​Civil​ ​War​ ​to​ ​support​ ​your​ ​ideas. When​ ​developing​ ​your​ ​argument,​ ​keep​ ​the​ ​following​ ​factors​ ​in​ ​mind: ● ● Your​ ​opinion​ ​and​ ​argument​ ​should​ ​be​ ​well​ ​supported​ ​by​ ​your​ ​notes​ ​and​ ​any​ ​other​ ​research​ ​you​ ​have done.​ ​It​ ​should​ ​also​ ​focus​ ​on​ ​specific​ ​issues​ ​relating​ ​to​ ​the​ ​causes​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Civil​ ​War. If​ ​you​ ​need​ ​additional​ ​guidance,​ ​many​ ​writing​ ​resources​ ​are​ ​available​ ​to​ ​help​ ​you​ ​create​ ​a​ ​strong​ ​thesis statement Using the ​author date system​, make sure you provide parenthetical, in-text citations for any information you use from outside sources. When you finish writing, reread to check for the points above, and then proofread it to sure your work doesn’t contain errors in grammar or spelling. When you are done, submit your notes, if any, and final essay​ ​using​ ​the​ ​drop​ ​box. Here​ ​are​ ​some​ ​additional​ ​resources​ ​to​ ​help​ ​you​ ​complete​ ​this​ ​task: ● Research​ ​and​ ​Writing​ ​Info​ ​Center ● ● Developing​ ​an​ ​Argument Methods​ ​for​ ​Writing​ ​a​ ​Quality​ ​Paper Type​ ​your​ ​essay​ ​here: ​ ​I​ ​think​ ​ ​he​ ​civil​ ​war​ ​was​ ​caused​ ​by​ ​unfair​ ​tariffs,​ ​as​ ​seen​ ​when​ ​Andrew​ ​Jackson​ ​was​ ​in​ ​office,​ ​and​ ​South​ ​Carolina​ ​seceded from​ the​ ​U.S.,​ ​because​ ​of​ ​said​ ​tariffs.​ ​Also​ ​another​ ​main​ ​cause​ ​was​ ​slavery.​ ​However,​ ​I​ ​think​ ​it​ ​was​ ​mainly​ ​slavery​ ​that​ ​caused the​ ​Civil​ ​War. If​ ​both​ ​North​ ​and​ ​South​ ​agreed​ ​with​ ​each​ ​other​ ​a​ ​war​ ​would​ ​not​ ​have​ ​occurred.​ ​Although,​ ​I​ ​support​ ​the​ ​North​ ​because​ ​the North​ ​wanted​ ​to​ ​completely​ ​abolish​ ​slavery​ ​while​ ​South​ ​didn’t.​ ​A​ ​war​ ​did​ ​help​ ​solve​ ​the​ ​sole​ ​arguments​ ​whether​ ​if​ ​they​ ​should abolish​ ​slavery​ ​or​ ​not. Even​ ​though​ ​South​ ​did​ ​not​ ​win,​ ​they​ ​were​ ​not​ ​correct​ ​in​ ​wanting​ ​to​ ​keep​ ​the​ ​slaves​ ​because​ ​they​ ​were​ ​too​ ​lazy​ ​to​ ​do​ ​anything. This​ ​proves​ ​that​ ​the​ ​South​ ​was​ ​promoting​ ​laziness,​ ​and​ ​they​ ​were​ ​promoting​ ​to​ ​keep​ ​the​ ​slaves​ ​because​ ​they​ ​did​ ​not​ ​care​ ​about their​ ​human​ ​rights​ ​as​ ​an​ ​equal​ ​person. ...

    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.
