Issued by Abraham Lincoln on January 1, 1863, the Emancipation Proclamation declared "all persons held as slaves within any State or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free." Although the Emancipation Proclamation did not end slavery, it did change the basic character of the Civil War. Instead of waging a war to restore the old Union as it was before 1861, the North was now fighting to create a new Union without slavery. The proclamation also authorized the recruitment of African Americans as Union soldiers. By the end of the Civil War, approximately 180,000 African Americans had served in the Union army and 18,000 in the navy.

I'm trying to fill my secondary-level US history classroom with replicas of primary sources and historical artifacts, and this fits both categories. Providing both the text of the Emancipation Proclamation and the historical presentation of this text allows an analysis of both the meaning of this landmark document as well as the impact it had in the political culture of the late-nibeteenth century. Plus it's a fine looking piece to display.
