Did Lincoln free the slaves??


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:

  1. The emancipation proclamation was not an alturistic ending for slavery,but a very bad political strategy to weaken the south.
  2. 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.
  3. They were not allowed to purchase there own land,there right to vote was not equal.
