This article looks at the effects of the emancipation proclamation on the Confederate government, its politics, support for military efforts and campaigns, and on public support and opinion of the war and the Confederacy. Particular attention is given to the resultant change in identity and sentiment among the Confederate citizenry from seeing themselves as united in the cause of preserving states' rights to being divided by the status of slaveholder and non-slaveholder and recognizing slavery as the real driving force of the war.
