Civil War and Emancipation Policy

In this class from the course on the Civil War and Reconstruction, Georgetown University history professor Brian Taylor discusses how the Union’s emancipation policy came about during the war.

The video’s description reads, “Professor Brian Taylor talked about the military strategy and political policy goals of emancipation during the Civil War. He spoke about how ending slavery became a major goal for the Union as the war progressed and discussed the piecemeal ways slavery was ended in border states and in Confederate territory. He argued that emancipation was a process achieved gradually, rather than happening solely by the Emancipation Proclamation or the 13th Amendment.”

This is a pretty good class.
