    Mr Lincoln and the Emancipation Proclamation didn't free all slaves, only those slaves in Confederate states. He and it sort of ignored the slaves in the Union states.

    P.S.
    The war wasn't about slavery, it was about states rights that Mr Lincoln wanted to trample all over. An obvious violation of the constitution.
