Lincoln tried to raise a army of 75,000 miltia men after the fall of Fort Sumter(Civil War). Lincoln tried to get a rough draft of the Emancipation Proclamation through Congress. On January 1, 1863, The Emancipation Proclamation was put into law and the document said that slaves could now join the army to preserve the Union(Civil War). The Proclamation didn’t free no slave, it was just a guideline that said they should fight to end slavery. To quote from the Emancipation Proclamation, “ slaves within any State, or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free.” This is saying that slaves should be free, if not, then they are to be free by military forces.” This is how Lincoln found a new motive for the Union army to fight.
Conscription + America = Bad “Hell No, We Won’t Go!” This was a popular phrase during the 60s, used by citizens who had been called up by the draft to fight. Conscription, or draft, has been used in America as early as the nineteenth century when forming Napoleons’ army. The early American colonies didn’t have a draft but they required men to serve in a militia.

Although it didn’t surface in America until colonial times, the idea of forcing men to serve in military has been around since ancient worlds.

The North Carolina Patriot militia leaders Isaac Shelby and John Sevier, from the Washington District (now present day northeast Tennessee), met after receiving Ferguson’s message and agreed to lead their militia against him. Patriot leaders also sent a message to Virginia militia leader, William Campbell, asking him to join them.
By the time the Civil war broke out, David, who thought secession was an act of treason, moved from Virginia to New York to offer his service to the union. In April, 1862, while commander of the West Gulf Blockading Squadron, “Flag Officer” Farragut took the city and port of New Orleans. As a reward, the Union created the new rank of Rear Admiral.

A confrontation on the Lexington town green started off the fighting, and soon the British were hastily retreating under intense fire.
