- Apr 7, 2000I remember being taught (or it seemed like it) that the Civil War was fought
for the freedom of slaves, and the Emancipation Proclamation freed them. It
wasn't until 8th grade that I learned the truth and really got interested in
the Civil War. Don't get me wrong, Lincoln is my favorite president, but the
Emancipation Proclamation was a good way to work the system. However, we are
not here to discuss politics in the East.
