This Day in History: Slavery Is Abolished in America

This Day in History: Slavery Is Abolished in America December 18, 1865 The 13th Amendment was formally adopted into the U.S. Constitution.

It ensures that “neither slavery nor involuntary servitude … shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.” It had been approved in the Republican-led Senate in April of 1864.

But the amendment had been bogged down in the Democratic-led House of Representatives for almost a year.

On December 2, 1865, Alabama became the 27th state to ratify the 13th Amendment.

The former confederate state's vote provided the requisite three-fourths majority of states’ approval needed to make the 13th amendment the law of the land.
