During the 18th and 19th centuries, slavery was a profitable way for white males to earn money, mostly in the southern parts of the 13 colonies. They would treat them harshly and forced them into hard labor.
Many African Americans were sent to trial for unnecessary things. In 1830 The North Carolina v. Mann case in the Supreme Court of North Carolina stated that Slaveowners were ruled to have absolute authority over their slaves and could not be found guilty of committing violence against them.
Abraham Lincoln was president during this time. He believed slavery should be abolished. So, he signed the Emancipation Proclamation to free over 3 million slaves.
The Civil War broke out for the cause of freedom for African Americans. One of the major battles was The Battle of Gettysburg that took place on July 1st, 1863.
The war had finally ended on May 9th, 1865 and slaves were free. Many people died fighting for what they believed in. And the Thirteenth Amendment was passed on December 6th 1865.
Now, everybody treats each other fairly and see everyone as equal. No matter skin color, or race. And nobody owns anyone thanks to the Thirteenth Amendment.
