Emancipation ProclamationToday marks the sesquicentennial of the Emancipation Proclamation, which made the Civil War explicitly about ending the institution of slavery. The timing is appropriate, given the success of Lincoln and its focus on a different legal document and process to emerge from Lincoln's presidency (good posts on the legal procedures in the movie here, here, and here).
