Emancipation Proclamation

Issued by President Abraham Lincoln on January 1, 1863, following the strategic Union victory at the Battle of Antietam, the Emancipation Proclamation made the end of slavery a strategic goal of the Union during the Civil War. The proclamation declared all slaves in states then in rebellion against the United States to be free along with other provisions related to the enlistment of former slaves in the Union Army and the protection of former slaves by Union forces.
