Who Freed the Slaves During the Civil War?

This Who Freed the Slaves During the Civil War? lesson plan also includes:

Pose the question to your historians: who really freed the slaves? They critically assess various arguments, using primary sources as evidence. In small groups, scholars jigsaw 5 primary source documents (linked), and fill out an analysis worksheet (also linked). They present their findings to the class through 3 basic "who-what-why" questions. Then, they complete a "weighing the evidence" worksheet, determining the answer to the essential question. This is a clean and inclusive lesson plan!
