This seminar offers an opportunity to reconsider the significance of the Emancipation Proclamation. Was it a turning point in American history, or has its importance been exaggerated? How and why did slavery end in the United States? We’ll do our best to address these questions, drawing on primary sources and on recent writing by historians.
