Storyboard Text

  • Main Idea
  • 13th Amendment
  • In December of 1865, all slaves and indentured servants were freed because of the ratification of the 13th amendment.
  • Setting
  • This takes place after the Civil War in the south right after the 13th amendment was ratified.
  • Andrew Johnson
  • Evidence
  • The 13th amendment states that "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, or any place subject to their jurisdiction."
  • Perspective
  • Newly freed African- Americans, who strongly approved the 13th amendment because it freed them had a problem because of it. The problem was that many hardships came with freedom because they had very little money and most of them did not own any land.
  • Audience
  • North
  • South
  • Significance
  • Northern abolitionists were delighted at the news of the 13th amendment and they knew it was coming.
  • Southern farmers were not very happy at all but they knew this was bound to happen because they lost the Civil War
  • While the 13th amendment was a great moment for the African-Americans, in later years they were discriminated against and it was very miserable for them until the 1960s
