in the revolution

The Proclamation actually took place in Washington, D.C.

By the summer of 1862, Lincoln had prepared an EMANCIPATION PROCLAMATION, but he did not want to issue it until Union armies had had greater success on the battlefield. The Union army's victory at the Battle of Antietam encouraged the president to issue a preliminary proclamation on September 22, 1862, that announced the abolition of slavery in areas occupied by the Confederacy effective January 1, 1863.

To some, the Civil War is considered the 2nd Revolution in the United States. The Proclamation was delivered by President Lincoln Jan 1, 1863. The Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution officially abolished and continues to prohibit slavery and involuntary servitude, except as punishment for a crime. It was passed by the Senate on April 8, 1864, passed by the House on January 31, 1865, and adopted on December 6, 1865. On December 18, Secretary of State William H. Seward, in a proclamation, declared it to have been adopted. It was the first of the Reconstruction Amendments. The last state to ratify the 14th amendment - that was a state in 1868 was Kentucky, March 18, 1976.
