Did the Emancipation Proclamation free any slaves?

1871 Bronze Emancipation Proclamation Medal

Are you curious? Did the Emancipation Proclamation free any slaves? The correct answer would be that it “did not free all slaves in the United States. Rather, it declared free only those slaves living in states not under Union control.”

This beauty was struck nearly 150 years ago, but looks like it was struck only yesterday! The 1871 Bronze Emancipation Proclamation Medal made because of this monumental occasion is simply stunning. Unbelievable, that the US mint made it to commemorate Lincoln.
