Storyboard Text

  • Main Idea
  • 13th Amendment
  • The 13th amendment amendment gets rid of slavery. It was passed April, 8th 1864. It was passed by the senate with a vote of 38 to 6. This made many southern plantation owners very mad.
  • Setting
  • The 13th amendment took place in the USA. At the time slavery was legal. It was the year 1864 when the 13th amendment was passed. It was a post-Civil War United States.
  • Evidence
  • "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." Formally abolishing slavery in the United States, the 13th Amendment was passed by the Congress on January 31, 1865, and ratified by the states on December 6, 1865.
  • Perspective
  • African Americans who had been freed by the 13th amendment. The 13th amendment was passed by congress on January, 31, 1865. The 13th amendment wasn't ratified though, by the states until December 6, 1865. The 13th amendment set millions of slaves free with no where to go or live. So the slaves had too resort to share-cropping.
  • Audience
  • Just were freed by the 13th amendment and released from plantations. They appreciate the 13th amendment. Without the 13th amendment they would still suffer from bad conditions on plantations.
  • Newly freed slaves
  • After the 13th amendment plantation owners lost most of their work force if not all of it. Most also Invested a lot of money on buying slaves to make money. Most plantation owners. are very angry because most of their income will be gone.
  • Plantation Owners
  • Significance
  • The 13th amendment is significant to me because African Americans aren't currently slaves. Without the 13th amendment African Americans would still be enslaved. Instead they are just like every normal person now. Without the 13th amendment it would be very weird. I am happy it was created.
