What's The Point Of The Thirteenth Amendment?

By Brittany Antonacci June 15, 2020 0 comments

Hello Fellow Americans,

Today we’ll be continuing our in-depth series at a look into the constitution—primarily covering the Thirteenth Amendment. We’ll be giving a little background history as well as the purpose it currently holds. 

So, without further ado, let’s get started…

The Thirteenth Amendment states…

Section 1. "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."

 

Section 2. "Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.”

 

This was put into play to bring an end to slavery, which had been around since the Early British Colonies. This was a long and brutal fight, but once the thirteenth amendment was ratified the ending of slavery was marked. 

 

However, a lot of things had to occur in order for this amendment to even be considered like…

 

The Missouri Compromise

 

This compromise divided states into free and slave states, this only temporarily solved the conflict at hand, making Missouri a slave state. It did, however, give the idea that slaves could be free in some instances, which made it possible in the future for slavery to be abolished.

 

Emancipation Proclamation

 

This was issued during the Civil War by Abraham Lincoln; this freed the slaves in confederate states that were not under union control. It didn’t free the slaves entirely but acted as the groundwork for the thirteenth amendment.

 

Ratification

 

In 1865, when Georgia became the 27th state to ratify the amendment, it was officially added to the constitution as a result of a three-fourth vote--finally abolishing slavery for good.

 

Overall, this amendment took a lot of groundwork to be brought to fruition, but in the end was totally worth it. Let us know if you have any additional questions on this amendment and we’ll be happy to answer them in the comments. 

 

See You Later Patriot!!!
