Did Lincoln free the slaves??
NO HE DID NOT
Did he? Or did the slaves free themselves?
- The emancipation proclamation only freed the slaves in some states
- Segregation continued
- unreasonable laws.
Why didn't he:
- The emancipation proclamation was not an alturistic ending for slavery,but a very bad political strategy to weaken the south.
- Segregation was seen every where freed slaves they couldn't sit in the same seat as any other person, they had diffrent schools then the white.
- They were not allowed to purchase there own land,there right to vote was not equal.
