Sinopsis de THE PENINSULA CAMPAIGN AND THE NECESSITY OF EMANCIPATION

In the Peninsula Campaign of spring 1862 Union general George B McClellan failed in his plan to capture the Confederate capital and bring a quick end to the conflict But the campaign saw something new in the warthe participation of African Americans in ways that were critical to the Union offensive Ultimately that participation influenced Lincolns decision to issue the Emancipation Proclamation at the end of that year Glenn David Brashers unique narrative history delves into African American involvement in this pivotal military event demonstrating that blacks contributed essential manpower and provided intelligence that shaped the campaigns military tactics and strategy and that their activities helped to convince many Northerners that emancipation was a military necessityDrawing on the voices of Northern soldiers civilians politicians and abolitionists as well as Southern soldiers slaveholders and the enslaved Brasher focuses on the slaves themselves whose actions showed that they understood from the outset that the war was about their freedom As Brasher convincingly shows the Peninsula Campaign was more important in affecting the decision for emancipation than the Battle of Antietam
