    Believe it or not, the Emancipation Proclamation did not abolish slavery throughout the entire US at the time. It only freed slaves that were out of the North's jurisdiction. Why, then, was the Emancipation Proclamation written and was it effective? Is it even worth commemorating?

And perhaps for that reason, no serious study of the Proclamation has appeared since John Hope Franklin's brief The Emancipation Proclamation in , written for its centennial. (That centennial itself was a disappointing affair, capped by President John F. Kennedy's refusal to give the principal address at ceremonies at the Lincoln Memorial Book Edition: Reissue.
