It gave rise to the civil war, causing eleven states to secede from the union and form the confederate states of america.-it is not true that lincolns emancipation proclamation caused eleven states to secede from the union and form the confederate states of america. the emancipation proclamation was issued in 1863; the states seceded and formed the confederate states of america in 1861. it is true, however, that the only slaves freed by the proclamation were those residing in the states that seceded from the union. the proclamation was also one of the precipitators of the new york city draft riot, as many irish workers turned against that citys african american population in violent protest of having to fight in the union army to free the slaves, so that - in the minds of the rioters - the freed slaves could come north as free men and women and compete for the rioters jobs. the rioters were also resentful of the fact that because they were too poor to buy their way out the draft, they were disproportionately represented among union army troops. the proclamation helped prevent britain and france from intervening in the war on the side of the confederacy, because having freed all slaves residing in their territorial possession, both countries had since become advocates of the abolition of slavery in all parts of the world. the emancipation proclamation made the american civil war a war to abolish slavery, rather than one caused by disagreements as to whether they seceded or any other american states had the constitutional right to withdraw from the union.
