Abolition of slavery
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 these article by appropriate legislation.
What does this mean?
This amendment means that there is no more slavery!
Why this picture??
I decided to show this picture of a slave to show just a snap shot of how horribly slaves were treated. And just all over how horrible slavery was and how important the thirteenth amendment was.
