Description:

This paper, based on James McPherson's book, "Abraham Lincoln and the Second American Revolution," highlights three major Civil War era documents: the Emancipation Proclamation, Lincoln's second inaugural address and the Thirteenth Amendment, as evidence that the Civil War brought about more radical change in government than the first American Revolution in 1776.

From the Paper:

"James McPherson in his book; "Abraham Lincoln and the Second Revolution" argues that the Civil War brought about a much more radical change in government than the first American Revolution in 1776. When considered closely, three key Civil War documents, namely the Emancipation Proclamation, Lincoln's second inaugural address and the 13th Amendment, each support the notion of a major political and social revolution having occurred in the form of the Civil War."
