As a war measure, Lincoln announced the freedom of slaves in the Confederate states.

First of all it is Abraham Lincoln. President Lincoln opposed slavery and he was president during the Civil War. If you are a student, It would probably helpful to look in your textbook. Also states rights' were an issue to him but not as major as slavery.


Abraham Lincoln said that slavery could exist in the United States if it did not spread. That means that the states that had slaves could keep them, but any new state added to the union could not have slavery. Stephan A Douglas believed that slavery was wrong and that it should be abolished from all states now and in the future. Bottom Line: Lincoln= current slave holding states have slaves. All new states have no slaves. Douglas= no slaves what so ever.

Slavery was protected by the US Constitution. The President could not free the slaves. The Emancipation Proclamation only applied to those states which had seceded from the union, so they lost their constiutional rights.

Antietam (Sharpsburg) was the Union vixctory in September 1862 that gave Lincoln the credibility to issue the Emancipation Proclamation, liberating the slaves in the rebel-states - in theory, but not of course in practice, since he did not control those states.
