    It was strategic. If Lincoln would have issued the Emancipation Proclamation before the north won a battle, it would give the impression that he just wanted blacks to fight only because he was loosing the war.

    After the Union won Antietam, he issued the proclamation. This bolstered the Union cause from one of defying states rights, to defending the freedom of men in bondage. Was a great battle cry.
