FC: The Thirteenth Amendment ~Levi 13045 Social Studies 8 10:00 A.M class
1: The Thirteenth Amendment was a very important political political document that was made by Congress in January of 1865, just after the civil war.
2: I feel that the Thirteenth Amendment is very important because it helped free, stop, and abolish slavery from our country forever. The document may have made the South very unhappy, but it free the captive and helpless African Americans that were suffering of slavery.
3: The Thirteenth Amendment also enforced that forced labor or slavery be banned from the country for life, if you do not abide the laws of the Amendment you shall be tried and punished of forced labor. So what you would have tried to gain out forced labor for your self, you just lost.
4: The Thirteenth Amendment basically acted as the Emancipation Proclamation on a higher level. It said that all slavery be banned in ALL territory, not just certain areas of our country. I feel that if you want slavery, then leave our country and go make your own rules.
5: So that is how I feel about the Thirteenth Amendment. That our country should respect others and love their neighbor as their self our treat others as you would want to be treated. The Thirteenth Amendment set the captives free, put the bad in their place, and banned the evil for ever.
