Best Answer

Abraham Lincoln drafted the Proclamation of Emancipation because he did it to save all the slaves and try to see if he could have people help him. This proclamation only freed the slaves in those areas under Confederate control, and since the Confederates did not consider themselves to be a part of the United States it essentially did nothing except give the hard-core abolitionists that warm fuzzy feeling you get when you do a good thing. There was some hope that it would encourage Southern slaves to fight for the Union, but they would have had to escape to the North first.
