Why did the proclamation not actually free any slaves?

I assume you mean the proclamation Abraham Lincoln made in 1862.

It did free a few slaves, those who had runaway and were in holding camps by the Yankee army. But the proclamation "freed" slaves in the area that were not held by the North, so it had little effect at the time of the proclamation.
