Storyboard Description


Storyboard Text

  • Main Idea
  • The 13th Amendment was created to formally abolish all types of slavery except slavery used as a form of punishment. It was passed by Congress on January 31, 1865, and ratified by the states on December 6, 1865.
  • It was created during reconstruction. President Abraham Licoln approved it.
  • Setting
  • The 13th Amendment made slavery nor involuntary servitude possible unless as a punishment for crime within the United States.
  • Evidence
  • Perspective
  • It gave the slaves freedom from their owners and let them do what they wanted, until the Southerners started making Black Laws and created Jim Crow laws.
  • The Southerners didn't like this, so they created Black Laws to restrict what former slaves can do. They also made Jim Crow laws that segregated them.
  • Audience
  • Though the 13th Amendment gave former slaves freedom, Southerners retaliated by making Black Laws and Jim Crow laws that limited what the former slaves could do and segregated them.
