Confiscation Act of 1862 was an updated version of the 1861 Act that gave the federal government the right to take away all property, which included slaves. This law was directed toward anyone who was considered a threat to Lincoln’s government or war effort. There was concern about federal government’s power in taking away personal freedoms or right to property. But it was an important step toward releasing the slaves from bondage and it added to the number of solders who could help fight in Lincoln’s army.
I am a student at Metropolitan State University completing a B.S. degree in Computer Information Technology B.S. I have always enjoyed solving puzzles and math equations, which explains why computer programming and building networks comes very easy to me. I’ve enjoyed working with friends’ or family’s computer problems as it presents new challenges, restoring them back to working order. When I program computers, I use creativity to solve algorithms and build new projects to enhance my programming and computer skills. View all posts by Kevin Day
