The Frémont Emancipation[edit]

Someone needs to ad this, it probably forced lincoln's hand.

Barney Fife?[edit]

Is there a specific reason to include this section? It seems pretty unimportant when compared with the rest of the article. I watched the Andy Griffiths Show clip and there were no insights in the segment related to the actual Emacipation Proc., it was just an extended gag about Barney bragging about how smart he was and being embarrassed by Andy et al.

In a episode 86 of the Andy Griffith Show, Andy asks Barney to explain the Emancipation Proclamation to Opie who is struggling with history at school.[1] Barney brags about his history expertise, yet it is apparent he cannot answer Andy's question. He finally becomes frustrated and explains it is a proclamation for certain people who wanted emancipation.[2]

If no reasons to keep, then I am going to cut it. Thanks KConWiki (talk) 14:53, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

13th Amendment[edit]

Here, I've replaced a cite of a WP article (not a reliable source) with a {{cn}} tag. Actually, I don't think that the assertion, as written, is necessarily true in the case of unincorporated territories. See Territories of the United States#Incorporated and unincorporated territories. As I understand it, unincorporated territories are subject to U.S. jurisdiction, but are only subject to parts of the U.S. constitution which have been determined on a case by case basis by the U.S. Congress to be applicable.

Other emancipation proclamations?[edit]

There were actually a number of different emancipation proclamations in different countries at different dates, ranging over a century or two. Should we perhaps put in a hatnote linking to Abolition of slavery timeline? For example the emancipation proclamation in the Dutch colonies was 1863 I believe. Grateful thanks to anyone who would like to fix this. I may do it myself if no-one objects. Invertzoo (talk) 21:23, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

I went ahead and did this. Invertzoo (talk) 15:03, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
