The Emancipation Proclamation was an Executive Order. It certainly is reasonable for Lincoln to establish his authority to issue it by noting he is President of the United States. By adding the fact that he is Commander in Chief emphasizes that the EP is a military measure designed to restore the Union and to return the Confederate States to the Union. He offers not to free the slaves of any state which will voluntarily return to the Union. Of course, none did. He also proposes compensated emancipation for slave owners willing to sell their slaves to the Federal Government.
I studied this before.. Lincoln wanted to show people he served the country well and that he go by his business. brb ima search up this topic! ;)
