Braxton Bragg to Henry Hunt: A friendship on the brink of war
The Emancipation Proclamation stands as the single most important accomplishment of Lincoln's presidency. The preliminary proclamation, announced on September 22, 1862, served as a warning for Southern states that if they did not abandon the war, they would lose their slaves. More importantly, it was the first step toward the official abolition of slavery in the United States.
