Why did the Emancipation Proclamation free slaves only in Confederate states? A- President Lincoln did not have the authority to remove property from U.S. citizens. B- President Lincoln did not have the authority to naturalize Northern freedmen into citizens. C- Northern legislatures had already passed legislation blocking emancipation. D- Northern legislatures had already passed the Emancipation Proclamation. I'll fan and medal anyone who helps! Thanks!

    The Emancipation Proclamation didn't actually free all of the slaves. Since Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation as a military measure, it didn't apply to border slave states like Delaware, Maryland, Kentucky and Missouri, all of which had remained loyal to the Union
