The students should recognize the fight against slavery was only one part, but an important one, in the series of events that culminated in the Civil War. While the thirteenth Amendment prohibited slavery after the war, segregation replaced it as a social and economic fact in the South.


Primary Source Documents:

Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address - the most famous speech of U.S. President Abraham Lincoln and one of the most quoted famous speeches in United States history. It was delivered at the dedication of the Soldiers' National Cemetery in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, on November 19, 1863, during the American Civil War, four and a half months after the Battle of Gettysburg.

Only Known Photo of Lincoln at Gettysburg - These modern prints showing the crowd around the platform at Gettysburg and a detail from that picture of President Lincoln on the platform were made from the original glass plate negative at the National Archives.
