American History Amendment
The 13th amendment prohibited slavery in the US and all territories belonging to the US
President Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation as an executive order but in order for it to stay it had to become an amendment.
This amendment affected the southerners because that was where slavery was most prevalent
The 13th amendment did not affect the North very much because slavery was not common
Slaves became free and no longer were entitled to their assigned work
Wake up! We are free! No more cotton!
Many slaves didn't know anything other than slavery so they didn't know where to go as freedmen
Where do we go now?
Freedmen began looking for work anywhere they could.
