Unit 12:What were the effects of the Civil War? Skyler, Tranija ,Alexis
Slavery Issues… <ul><li>The American civil war had a profound effect on the lives of slaves. It ultimately resulted in the abolition of slavery. Slaves first arrived in America in Virginia in 1619. The Underground Railway was a way by which slaves could find freedom. This was a method for northerners to help escaped slaves to find a place to live in free states or Canada. Free black Americans were usually the ones to plan and helped with the Underground Railroad. It is believed about 50,000 to 100,000 people used the Underground Railroad to escape to their freedom. The Underground Railroad was used mostly in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana. </li></ul>
New Beginning… <ul><li>During the civil war America used may things for the first time. For example we used submarines for the first time, women also became teachers, office workers, sales clerks, and government workers. they worked in factories and managed farms. They also suffered loss ofhusbands,fathers,sons,and brothers, many women preferred jobs that helped the soldiers and armies. </li></ul>
Emancipation Proclamation… <ul><li>Because the Emancipation Proclamation applied only to areas that the confederacy controlled, it did not actually free anyone. Lincoln knew, however, that many enslaved people would hear about the proclamation. He hoped that the knowledge of it would encourage them to run away from their slaveholders. Even before the Emancipation Proclamation, some 100,000 African Americans had slavery for the safety of the union lines. </li></ul>
Slaves in the war… <ul><li>Early in the war, Lincoln opposed enlisting African Americans as soldiers. The Emancipation Proclamation announced Lincoln’s decision to permit African Americans to join the Union army. In the South, as well as in the North, the Civil War was changing the lives of all African Americans. </li></ul>
