why was it important for lincoln to wait to issue the emancipation proclamation?so would it be it could have caused revlot in the north or it was important to have popular support beforehand or it could have ended the rebellion before union victory or it may have caused lincoln to lose reelection.
Because some Northererns would not reelect him before he supported freeing slaves. He had to have popular support for his idea so he would be able to be reeelected. Brainiest please!!!
