 Unit 2: Project

Please explain in a Video presentation of at least 500 words how the Emancipation Proclamation was a game changer for the Civil War. Include how it affected the goal of the Civil War, the combatants, and how it influenced foreign nations’ decisions as to whether or not to support one side over the other in the war. You can consider the following in your essay:

  1. How were slaves treated?
  2. What were the underlying factors for the continuation of slavery? 
  3. How did slaves influence America’s economy during the time of slavery? Do you think America would have prospered into one of the most powerful countries had it not been for the economic prosperity of slavery? Explain why or why not.
  4. What was the significance of President Lincoln’s election?
