December 6, 1865: The 13th Amendment is Ratified
On this day in 1865, the institution of slavery legally ended with the ratification of the 13th Amendment, just seven months after the end of the Civil War. The House passed the measure in January 1865, yet it became official almost a year later when Georgia’s ratification completed the constitutionally required approval by three quarters of the states. Georgia was the 27th state to ratify out of 36 at the time.
