Maybe you should watch that new Lincoln movie.  It tells the story of President Lincoln and the 13th Amendment. 

It is a great movie and good history:

On this day in 1865, the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, officially ending the institution of slavery, is ratified. 
“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.” 
With these words, the single greatest change wrought by the Civil War was officially noted in the Constitution.”

President Lincoln showed great leadership in getting members of Congress to vote for the 13th Amendment.    

This is a movie worth watching.    You can get it here:  CLICK!

And it’s never too late to read a Lincoln biography.
