- 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
They reacted by making sure they did NOT cross the proclamation line!!
What did George the 3th Proclamation of 1763 say
The proclamation of 1763 failed because the settlers continued to move past the line.
The colonists completely ignored the proclamation and still began moving west.
The Emancipation Proclamation
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.
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.)
