Author: "Lincoln didn’t free the slaves; the slaves freed themselves."

AJC: Historian suggests Southerners defeated Confederacy

Boy do we need a dose of this very spirit WITHIN our community today.

Q: How important were black Southerners in the outcome of the war?

A: They were very important to undermining the Confederate war effort. When slaves heard that Abraham Lincoln had been elected, many of them thought they were free and started leaving plantations. So many eventually escaped to Union lines that they forced the issue. As other historians have said, Lincoln didn’t free the slaves; the slaves freed themselves.
