the Emancipation Proclomation

Emancipation of the Spirit

Forgotten was the fact that Douglass himself had remembered the announcement of the Proclamation that January day with unbridled joy. McClellan referred to the president as a gorrilla sic and insubordinately told him that Federal troops would fight only to save the Union, not to destroy slavery. Modern Americans should never forget that above all else, in its own day the Emancipation Proclamation was immensely controversial. But it was rare enough to excite President Obamas interest. Although some in the United Kingdom saw the Emancipation Proclamation as overly limited and reckless, Lincoln's directive reinforced the shift of the international political mood against intervention while the Union victory at Antietam further disturbed those who didn't want to intervene on the side. Its promise was not fulfilled by magic or ukase on July 4, 1776, but through hard fighting by the Continental Army in the months and years that followed. Too few people ever realized the Emancipation Proclamation had returned to the place where it was written: that is, an autographed, limited-edition presentation copy of the proclamation. It did not affect the four slave states that stayed in the Union: Delaware, Maryland, Kentucky, and, missouri.
