During the US Civil War, slaves in the Confederacy knew about the Lincoln Emancipation Proclamation. They had hopes for an early freedom even before the war ended because as Union troops captured Southern territory, slaves their were freed by the Union army. Later after the war, an amendment, the 13th amendment to the US Constitution abolished slavery.
