When lincoln issued his emancipation proclamation, he knew it did not have the power to end slavery. why was he correct?

Answers

Since the South seceded from the Union they were no longer in the same country. The Union laws didn't count for anything in the Confederacy. So Abraham was just trying to get the slaves from the south into the Union...
It would not have any power in the south because the civil war was still happening. But the North would adopt it before the war since after all this is what the north supported and what they were fighting the war for. not until the end of the war did it have any effect in 1965.
He was correct because the Southern states opposed the Emancipation Proclamation at first and some of the states would continue to do it even though the Emancipation Proclamation stated that to freed the slaves.

Hope that helps, Good luck! (:

The correct answer is D) It was going to take a constitutional amendment.

Lincoln issuing the Emancipation Proclamation was supposed to free slaves in the Confederate States of America. However, the Confederacy considered themselves an independent nation with their own set of rules and their own president (Jefferson Davis). With this in mind, Lincoln still issued the Emancipation Proclamation to show that the Union was now dedicated to getting rid of this institution. However, he knew that in order to totally get rid of this constitution, it needed to be done a different way.

In order for slavery to be officially over, the US Congress was going to have to get a constitutional amendment passed. This is imperative, as Congress is the part of the federal government that makes laws for the entire country to follow.

Further Explanation:

When President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln and the Republican party recognized the Emancipation Proclamation, It was as a measure of war but he knew that Emancipation Proclamation wont have any constitutional validity when the war came to end. Abraham Lincoln was a lawyer by profession and he was aware of the importance of making sure that Emancipation Proclamation had no loopholes. It was not supposed to be eloquent or touching instead it was intended to be an iron-clad legal document. Legal framework was still in existence with regards to slavery in the confederate states along with slave states that were not the part of Proclamation.  

So, because of that, Republican party pushed itself to the constitutional amendment  in order to abolish slavery. Because of that, Republican party in Senate, passed the thirteenth amendment where it got more than two third of votes in year 1964.
