The 13th Amendment
The 13th Amendment was established on December 6th 1865. This amendment made it illegal to own slaves. This was one of the largest amendments considering the excessive amount of slavery in the U.S. especially the South. From 1865 till today it has been illegal to force someone to work for you even if there is compensation involved.
The 13th amendment was the 1st amendment that protected blacks in the American constitution. Abraham Lincoln was the president at the time and just witnessed the civil war which earned blacks the right to live as free people. The Civil War and was really the major player in declaring America a “free country.” Soon after the 13th amendment came the 14th and 15th amendments that once again protected blacks. The 14th amendment allowed blacks to declare themselves as citizens, and the 15th amendment declared that no citizen shall be denired the right to vote regardless of their race, or ethnicity.
In our modern generation people are becoming more and more accepting of others despite their color, and it all started by the prestigious 13th amendment.
