I have a proposal!
The 13th amendment has been approved!
Now to the president!
Slavery started in the southern colonies. Landowner's made slaves do things such as maintain their crops, work in the fields, etc.
FREE THE SLAVES!
John Quincy Adams was the first to propose an Amendment to put an end to slavery in 1839. His proposal got denied. The 13th Amendment was later proposed.
"Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, for any place subject to their jurisdiction."
The 13th Amendment was passed in the Senate on April 8, 1864. It then passed the House of Representatives on January 31, 1865.
President Abraham Lincoln passed the Amendment on December 6, 1865 in Virginia.
The 13th Amendment abolished slavery in the United States except for punishment as a crime.
The passing of the 13th amendment changed American culture greatly. It allowed slaves to roam the streets freely without the fear of being used as property. The 13th amendment also made life harder for the whites. They had to work for themselves and could not sell or use slaves anymore.
