    1 of the biggest misconceptions of the emancipation proclamation. it freed no slaves. only freed slaves in the Confederate States of America which was an independent nation. it did not free any slaves in the United States of America & there were a few states where slavery was legal like New Jersey, which had several slaves. it also did not free any slaves that were in areas conquered by the US at the time of the Proclamation. this was why the proclamation was controversial at the time & seen as just a political propaganda thing. the abolishment of slavery did not happen until the adoption of the 13th amendment which went into effect in december 1865.

    lookwhatbobfound: Mostly true. However, CSA could hardly be considered an independent nation when no country in the whole world recognized it as such. It had as much legitimacy as if I declared myself a nation. Even the Sovereign Military Order of Malta (two hectares in Rome) has infinitely more legitimacy than that.

    sorry, hippo, france did. besides, what does the acceptance of other nations have to do with it? it was the same setup as in 1776 when the colonies decalred themselves an independent nation.

    Sorry @look France did NOT recognize the Confederacy. And the ‘acceptance by other nations’ is critical. There are political, economic, legal and psychological benefits that come from the international recognition of a country’s sovereignty. Until then, it’s just an illegal rebel.

    The true turning point in the American Revolution was when Ben Franklin persuaded the French, the Spanish and the Dutch to ‘recognize’ the United States as a legal, sovereign country.

    “I wish you people would stop saying that.”

    They usually don’t know what the word means. They just repeat what Rushbo tells them.

    corzak: Correct. France and Britain both recognized the CSA as an entity at war with the US, but hardly as an independent nation. Sorta like the US and the Syrian revolutionary forces (although this could change at any moment).
