Lincoln wrote the Emancipation Proclamation, an executive order which freed the slaves in the Confederate states. He also wrote the "Gettysburg Address", but that was a speech he gave and was not a document at the time.
The Emancipation Proclamation was not a law but an executive order by the president. It needed the 13th amendment to the US Constitution to give it the weight and force of law.
Not everyone agrees on an answer to this question. Some think that he was the great liberator and that he freed the slaves because he knew it was wrong. However some believe that he only freed the slaves as a military stategy and that he only freed the slaves (emancipation proclamation) in order to weaken the confederacy. This way the North could win the war and preserve the union.
It was the ratification of the Thirteenth Amendment to the US Constitution on 18 December 1865. The Emancipation Proclamation was an Executive Order and did not free slaves under Union control, only those areas and states that were under the control of the Confederacy.
It wasn't a law; it was the Emancipation Proclamation, which was an executive order under Lincoln's powers as Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces. Lincoln would not have had the power to free the slaves in states that were in the Union and which were not in rebellion.
The Emancipation Proclamation. It did not actually free the slaves at that time, because Lincoln could not enforce any laws in the South. But it did give the Union troops a licence to free any slaves they came across in their Southern campaigns. This depleted the labour force and deprived the Confederates of farm produce.
President Lincoln wrote and issues the Emancipation Proclamation, which was a set of two executive orders. The second portion or second executive order found in the Emancipation Proclamation freed slaves in those Southern States, which had not returned to the Union by January 1, 1863. So slaves were "technically" freed in the Southern States, still in rebellion from the Union, as of January 1, 1863. The Emancipation Proclamation did not address the status of slaves in Missouri, or the border states, thus slavery was still legal in these areas until the 13th Amendment was passed and ratified by 3/4s of all of the states. This occurred on December 6,1865.

The Emancipation Proclamation is an executive order issued by United States President Abraham Lincoln on January 1, 1863, during theAmerican Civil War using his war powers. It proclaimed the freedom of slaves in the ten states then in rebellion, thus applying to 3.1 million of the 4 million slaves in the U.S. at that time. The Proclamation immediately freed 50,000 slaves, with nearly all the rest (of the 3.1 million) freed as Union armies advanced. The Proclamation did not compensate the owners, did not itself outlaw slavery, and did not make the ex-slaves (called freedmen) citizens.
