President Abraham Lincoln and his Attorney General, Edward Bates, eventually objected to the acts because they failed to restructure property holdings as much as emphasize Northern dominance. They also freed Southern blacks working for the Confederacy, causing great consternation. Even though the Emancipation Proclamation and the Thirteenth Amendment later made the acts moot, Syrett notes that they had lasting effects on racial and class relations during the Reconstruction and beyond."@en ;
