(p.303) 15 The Changing Legacy of Civil War Colonization
New Directions in the Study of African American Recolonization

Phillip W. Magness

University Press of Florida

Abraham Lincoln supported the colonization of black Americans to Africa and a number of other locations, yet some historians are reluctant to explore this topic because of the implications for what this support means to his legacy as the “Great Emancipator.” The standard argument goes that Lincoln once supported colonization but changed his mind by the time he issued the Emancipation Proclamation. Magness explores new sources to argue against this interpretation. He shows that Lincoln supported colonization until his death, and he explores the implications of this revelation.
