Inscription.  
This proclamation, issued on January 1, 1863, freed the slaves in the territory in rebellion against the United States. It did not abolish slavery; that required a constitutional amendment. The original proclamation, bearing Lincoln's signature and the seal of the United States, is in the National Archives at Washington.

And upon this act, sincerely believed to be an act of justice, warranted by the constitution upon military necessity I invoke the considerate judgment of mankind and the gracious favor of almighty God."
