Racism in the Civil War North

Emancipation  Proclamation

After Lincoln officially announced the Emancipation  Proclamation in January 1863, the Civil War enveloped a two-fold  purpose: fighting for reuniting the Union, and prohibiting slavery in  captured confederate territory. This action set off a chain reaction  that led to draft riots, which demonstrated Northern racism and  casualties between blacks and whites. Go to Section 2 of this week’s  Webtext titled “Why the North Won”, and view the resources provided for  the section discussing the New York City Draft Riots.  Next  explain three (3) ways that these riots supported the ‘myth’ of the  anti-racist liberals of the North and the difficulties facing free  African Americans.
