Expert's answer

Freedom after the Civil War

Freedom is one of the most basic rights and individual can have. Freedom comprises many things; example is movement and speech. There have been many times in the history of man where certain individuals have denied others their freedom. The classic example of freedom being snatched from individuals was the slavery period that occurred in America. The slave trade involved people being forced away from their homes in African and taken to the United States against their will, where they were forced to work on the farms of white men, slavery was full of abuse, mistreatment and suffering for those who were introduced and born into it.

Even when African American fought for their independence, some groups, especially those on the southern side and states on the border of the United States did not gain independence until after the civil war. When Abraham Lincoln became president, he was confronted with the civil war, the southern state had made slavery legal and were not willing to let go of the practice. The civil war took place from 1861-1865, and enslaved  people from the last remaining rebellion states had to wait till the end of the civil war when Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation to gain their freedom. The Emancipation proclamation was received in the south on June 19th 1865, the proclamation ordered the abolition of slavery as it was still rampant in the south.
