Lee's forces were allowed to escape Maryland weakened but intact, doubtless able to fight another day. But it was victory enough. Lincoln retreated to his summer retreat on the outskirts of Washington, and began expanding his draft order into a full-blown presidential proclamation. To save time, he used a pair of scissors to clip some relevant sections of the recently passed Congressional Confiscation Act, and pasted them onto his hurriedly composed document—forever leaving his fingerprint on the surviving document.
