Praise for Emancipation Proclamation :
FOUR STARRED REVIEW S
"A convincing, handsomely produced argument..."
-- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Bolden makes excellent use of primary sources; the pages are filled with archival photos, engravings, letters, posters, maps, newspaper articles, and other period documents. Detailed captions and a glossary interpret them for today's readers."
-- School Library Journal, starred review

"The language soars, powerfully communicating not just the facts about the Emancipation Proclamation but its meaning for those who cared most passionately."
-- Booklist, starred review

"Bolden tackles these questions in a richly illustrated overview of the lead-up to the Proclamation, organizing and reiterating information already familiar to many middle-schoolers, while introducing material that will probably be eye-opening to students who have taken their textbook's version of history at face value."
-- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books , starred review

Lincoln was struggling to hold the Union together. Would freeing the slaves help or hinder his effort? Told from the perspective of the blacks who were waiting for him to make a decision. Illus. with archival materials.
