Slavery

Slavery began in America in 1619 when African American Slaves were brought into Virginia to work in crop fields. These slaves were held against their will and considered as property. Slaves had no human rights, or ability to leave the plantations or farms. Slavery went on until president Abraham Lincoln released the Emancipation Proclamation which freed all slaves within the Confederate states in 1863. In 1865 the Civil War ended, and the Thirteenth Amendment ended all slavery throughout the United States. The amendment was effectivly working on June 19th of 1865.
