Please use the subject line for its obvious purpose.

Please also do not post questions more than once. Whenever someone with knowledge about your question comes along, he/she will respond.

Thanks for your patience.



my teacher like gave me the emancipation proclamation and asked: did lincoln's appeal to "military necessity" justify an act of questionable consitutionality?"

I do not understand what this is asking...please help me. thank you so much

ok...sorry. but i still need help with the question.

did lincoln's appeal to "military necessity" justify an act of questionable consitutionality?"

When Lincoln issued the Emancipation Declaration, he did so as Commander-in-Chief of the military. He claimed that his action was proper because it was necessary in the conduct of the war. However, the Constitution did not give a President the power to free the slaves.

Do you think Lincoln's violation of the Constitution was right? Or do you think that the war and freedom for slaves was for the larger good?
