The Emancipation Proclamation was NOT worthless because it outlawed slavery,which really helped because if this did not happen we would even be in slavery.So really the Emancipation Proclamation was really important.


The Proclamation was a useful political tool but that is all it was. It "freed" slaves held in territories "not under Union control" which meant The Confederate States of America where Lincoln had no authority. No, it was the passage of the 13th amendment to the US Constitution that freed the slaves and that alone.
