  1. My point is that the Emancipation Proclamation was meaningless because Lincoln didn't have jurisdiction in the Confederate states. People that have never read it think that it freed ALL slaves.
  2. Read the article about Antietam battle the writer said the north's victory paved the way for the Emancipation Proclamation which freed the slaves. Well yes it freed slaves but only in territories which were in confict with the North, the north could still have slaves and there were many still in slavery in the North. The 13th amendment freed the slaves long after Lincoln had died.
