13th Amendment

Paragraph

First Draft
Imagine if slavery was still around, slaves were still relevant and not free. This would be a terrible world to live in and America would be changed a lot. Fortunately, this is not the case, in 1864 Abraham Lincoln was elected president of the United States. This was a close battle and a very hard fight to win for Lincoln against George B. McClellan. Many American citizens thought that the reelection of Lincoln was impossible and it seemed like it for the most part. Once Lincoln was named the president, he issued the Emancipation Proclamation which made slaves of the Confederate occupied territories/states to be free. After Abraham Lincoln died, the 13th amendment was created on 1865, December 6th. This amendment abolished slavery permanently, unlike the Emancipation Proclamation, the 13th amendment abolished slavery all across the United States, not just abolishing it in captured areas. Fortunately, slavery is not around anymore because of the 13th amendment and the help of Abraham Lincoln.
