The Emancipation Proclamation altered the goals of the American Civil War. Initially, the Civil War had been a response to the secession, breaking away of the Confederate States, and was an attempt to bring about reunification. However, as the war developed so did Lincoln's aims. The war that was started over the debate over slavery was changed when Lincoln Emancipated the slaves. Thus their was a new moral and military drive to the war. Now the United States had a much wider support base and men to fight as soldiers after the Emancipation. This change meant one term of victory would be the ratifying of the Emancipation and official abolishment of slavery.
