- declared slaves free in the any area still in rebellion on the date the final proclamation was issued (January 1, 1863). Note that Lincoln took this step under his "war powers" as Commander-in-Chief; he did not have the Constitutional authority to free them elsewhere (though he took other steps to accomplish that as well).
- authorized the armed services to accept blacks
slaves in the south.
It freed the slavery!!!
I THINK THE ANSWER IS IN 1863
it made more blacks try to escape
The Emacipation Proclamation was written by Abraham Lincoln. It stated that there was to be no more slavery in the Union states.
...keeping the British out of the war. After the issue of the Proclamation, they could not aid the Confederates without looking pro-slavery.
He thought slave labor helped the Confederacy
Because the Union had at last scored a victory (Antietam), so he could issue the Proclamation without making it look like a desperate measure.
The Emancipation Proclamation was a declaration issued by Abe Lincoln. It is pretty much about equal rights and how no man shall be denied the right to vote and ect.
By turning the war into an official crusade against slavery, it kept the British and the French from supporting the Confederates. (It would have made them look pro-slavery themselves.)
The first African American to visit the White House was Fredrick Douglas After Pres. Lincoln signed the Emacipation Proclamation.
The Emancipation Proclamation was issued in Washington, DC, by President Lincoln, and freed those slaves held in territory then in rebellion against the government of the United States of America. As a result, it did not free anyone until Confederate lands were conquered after the Proclamation was signed. Those slaves held in lands already under the control of Union forces were not affected by the Proclamation.
It turned the war into an offical crusade against slavery - so Britain and France had to drop their plans to aid the South, because it would have made them look pro-slavery.
The Emancipation Proclamation abolished slavery in the states that were not under Union control. Although not many slaves were actually freed, it did give black men the freedom to joinand be accepted into the armed forces. The major message that came from the speech was that the civil war was being fought for freedom.
They were 'proclaimed' to be free in all the Confederate states - just where Lincoln had no power or influence at that time. The Northern slave-states, which had stayed out of the Confederacy, were allowed to continue practising slavery till after the war.
There is no emacipation status in Mississippi.
