Program Description   Two years of fighting changed what the American Civil War was about. Beginning in 1863, the North no longer fought only to save the Union, but also to end slavery. Lincoln believed ending slavery was the only way to win the war and not have to fight again.
This program focuses on an examination of political cartoons and paintings that highlight Abraham Lincoln, the Emancipation Proclamation, and the end of slavery. Particular attention is paid to the role that enslaved African Americans played in their own emancipation. Through guided historical inquiry your students are introduced to political cartoons as primary sources. They will engage in primary source analysis, and interpret the importance of these sources while learning about their historical context. This interactive presentation will end with a period for questions and answers.
