Part 17-LBCAA 30 year history

President Abraham Lincoln issued the preliminary Emancipation Proclamation on September 22, 1862. The Proclamation stipulated that if the Southern States did not cease their rebellion by January 1, 1863, then the Proclamation would go into effect and free all slaves residing in territory in rebellion against the federal government.
