This exhibition of Gilder Lehrman Collection materials curated and selected by the Gilder Lehrman Institute follows the dramatic turning points of 1863 in the American Civil War. After twenty months of civil war, President Abraham Lincoln used his war powers to strike a blow against slavery with the final Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863. It transformed the war from a struggle to save the Union to a war to restore the Union and to end slavery.
