There were four states of the Upper South - Kentucky, Missouri, Maryland, Delaware - that remained loyal to the Union, and were allowed to continue practising slavery throughout the war.

There was also the District of Columbia, where slavery was not outlawed till 1862, and then the new state of West Virginia, which joined the Union in 1863 and continued to practise slavery, though only on a small scale.
