Following the Union victory at Antietam in September 1862, President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, which freed the slaves in the states remaining in rebellion after the following January 1.
Although he was criticized by many for not going far enough, Lincoln had no constitutional power to end slavery in states loyal to the Union.
His act, however, encouraged slaves to help the Union and transformed the war into a crusade against slavery.
