Emancipation Proclamation
On January 1st, 1863, President Lincoln issued a Proclamation of Emancipation which freed all of the slaves in those states under rebellion who had not yet been conquered by the Northern armies. Although the proclamation did not in fact free even one slave at that moment, it heralded the end of slavery.
