The Emancipation Proclamation was written by Abraham Lincoln to
put a stop to the war. It was issued in our nationâ€™s capital, Washington, D.C.
on Sept 22,1862, and put into effect on Jan 1, 1863.
When Lincoln was writing the emancipation proclamation he said, â€ś
my main struggle is to save the union and is not either to save or destroy
slavery. If I could save the union without freeing any slave I would do it.
And if I could save it by freeing all slaves I would do it. And if I could save
it by saving some and leaving the others I would also do thatâ€¦.â€ť Lincoln
said that because he wanted to save the union without picking sides. The
Emancipation Proclamation involved the President, congress for approving
the document, and the American people.
Some causes of the Emancipation Proclamation were Lincolnâ€™s
personal beliefs on the issues of slavery. He believed it was morally wrong
for any person to own another person as property. He also issued the
proclamation as a way to win greater support of the northern states. He
issued it as a way to bring an end to the Civil War t
Blacks fought in 447 battles of the war, which significantly helped the union army. Also if Lincoln would have lost the election to Douglas, Douglas might not have issued it. ------------------------------------------------------------------------Bibliography. Lincoln"tms upbringing could have affected whether he had written it or not because he was brought up in a family having a strong distaste for slavery so he was against it. In conclusion, the Emancipation Proclamation, although not accepted by everyone at the time, particularly the large plantation owners of the south, became the law of the land for most states and resulted in the 13th amendment in 1865 which abolished slavery for everyone and forever. The battle of Antietam occurred in Sept. Roughly 180,000 black soldiers fought with union forces during the American Civil War after the proclamation was signed, which was equal to about 8. Another effect was in 1865 the 13th amendment was added to the Constitution which officially abolished slavery. As far as the military goes, the proclamation allowed blacks to enlist in the U. hat was ripping the nation and also to free up former slaves to join the enlisted forces in the north. Lee moved his 50 thousand-man army from Manassas on September 3 and marched into Maryland. he issued it when he did because the north had just fought and won the battle of Antietam.
