An essential reevaluation of a major turning point in American history and one of its most intriguing Presidents Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation forever changed the course of American history. In this fresh look at the making of what is arguably the greatest reform in American history, William Klingaman uncovers the events that led up to Lincoln's momentous decision, including the complex political and psychological pressures facing Lincoln in his consideration of the slavery question, his decision to issue the proclamation without consulting any member of his cabinet, and his meticulous attention to every word of the document. Klingaman's narrative takes the reader from Lincoln's inauguration through the Civil War to Lincoln's tragic assassination, concluding with a discussion of what the Emancipation Proclamation really meant to four million newly freed blacks and its subsequent impact on race relations in America.
