EMANCIPATION PROCLAIMED FOR SLAVES
PRESIDENT LINCOLN FREES SLAVES AMIDST A CIVIL WAR ON SLAVERY
THE NEW YORK TIMES
January 1, 1863
President Lincoln has made the crucial decision to sign the document that will effectively end all slavery in the warring nation of our great America. Amidst our wars we did not expect so radical a decision to be made, but it has been done, which will only lead to further hatred from our former brethren, the Confederates. with such a large blow to our lost ones down south, war is not soon expected to be over.
RELATIONSHIP WITH BRITAIN
Although not good for the Confederates, this is very good for the Union. Britain will simply not be able to support a side that is going against such a law. All of Britain's support will be directed toward the North and if things go as planned we will be able to win the war despite the military expertise seen from the South. Not only have we gained the support of Britain, but also of Spain, France, and various other countries when we need it the most.
SOLDIERS FOR THE WAR
Not only from this act is the Confederacy losing labor for their war efforts, but the North is gaining many soldiers to fight in the war. African Americans living in the North are already grabbing guns and shipping out, you too can support the war effort. Grab you r coats and head to the nearest recruiting station to help preserve the freedoms in our union.
The war may not soon be over, but with a win like Antietam under our belts this is looking like it may be a win for the union. Abraham Lincoln has done this country good with what he has done in office so far, so everybody, join the war effort, join the army, and long live the Union!!!
