Storyboard Text

  • The 13th Amendment
  • The 13th Amendment was issued in 1865, it prohibits slavery in the United States and it's territories.
  • I'm finally free!
  • "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as punishment for crime where of the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction."
  • Slaves were not property, they were not beaten and mistreated by their owner after the 13th Amendment was passed.
  • Yay, I'm free!
  • No more beatings!
  • The south didn't want the 13th Amendment to pass because their slaves would do the work for them.
  • I want my slaves back!
  • The north wanted the Amendment to pass because slaves were free in the north.
  • Slaves are not property they are people!
  • Even though slaves were free, they still faced discrimination and segregation. When jobs were open they were unable to get them because people thought that they were not equal. This lead to the 14th Amendment.
