This work explores the circumstances surrounding Abraham Lincoln's release of the Emancipation Proclamation in the context of the abolition movement and the Civil War. It explores many works of Abraham Lincoln and attempts to truly understand Lincoln's view on slavery. It also deals with the double edged sword of diplomacy that influenced the Emancipation Proclamation. Comparing and contrasting Lincoln's diplomatic relations with the border states and European nations, this work paints a clear picture of Lincoln and how he came to emancipate the slaves.
