About this course:

The American Civil War began as a war to restore the union, not a war to end slavery. Over the course of four years, enslaved people worked tirelessly to shape the civil war into a freedom war to destroy race slavery from America. In this course, we explore how enslaved people pushed President Abraham Lincoln and his military commanders towards embracing emancipation as a war aim. We examine how enslaved people compelled these leaders to take the giant steps forward needed to abolish slavery once and for all. On June 19, 1865, the federal government finally met that objective, declaring slavery dead across the country. This momentous event marked a new birth of freedom—an occasion we now commemorate as Juneteenth.
