Mississippi finally ratifies 13th Amendment Febuary 18, 2013
Mississippi ratifies 13th Amendment abolishing slavery almost 150 years after its adoption The state thought it had approved the amendment in 1995, but a clerical error left the ratification unresolved. The 13th Amendment, which outlawed all slavery and involuntary servitude except as punishment for a crime, was passed by the U.S. Senate on April 8, 1864, and by the House of Representatives on Jan. 31, 1865. The state took action, and its support for the amendment became official this month. http://ow.ly/hRe7l
