Use the below sources: video, website, and essay to gather information on both of the Emancipation Proclamations. Once you have gathered information, read through each document once and then go back and annotate one part of each document. You should have two annotations when complete.
Questions that can be answered with annotations:
●Which Republican goals were served by each paragraph?
● Why is the president authorized to do this?
● What should the President have replied to critics who warned him that this document would 1) anger the border states or southern unionists, and 2) undermine prosecution of the war?
●What differences are there in the two documents?
