While Lincoln waits for a victorious moment for this announcement, Union troops lose repeatedly to the brilliant generals Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee. Finally, with a victory at Antietam Creek, the bloodiest day of the war gives way to the dawn of emancipation. The definition of freedom in in America would never be the same again.
