Civil Rights Amendments

The 13th- 15th amendments are the Civil Rights amendments, or the slavery amendments. The 13th amendment is "Slavery shall not exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction." This abolished slavery in the USA. The 14th amendment is " No person born in the USA can be denied citizenship, no matter what their race or religion is." The 15th amendment is "The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied by the United States or by any state on account of race, color, or previously being a slave." This gave black men the right to vote.

What They Did

These amendments legally abolished slavery in the USA. After these amendments were passed, every person born in the US became a citizen, and every slave became a free man. This allowed the county to really be united as one, not divided between slaves and owners. The USA was finally the land of the free.
