Especially since the south didn’t really want to end slavery. But he felt that slavery had pretty much ended after the war so it was okay for him to draft the emancipation proclamation, but since the union army wasn’t doing so well at that time he waited so the North and his government didn’t look weak. When he issued it he did it so it looked like the right thing to do to free slaves and not in order to win the war.
