The Original Corwin (13th) Amendement!

Thomas Corwin

With all the hoopla about the Confederate States wishing to continue slavery, Lets see what the North had to offer!

Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the following article be proposed to the Legislatures of the several States as an amendment to the Constitution of the United States, which, when ratified by three-fourths of said Legislatures, shall be valid, to all intents and purposes, as part of the said Constitution, namely:

ART. 13. No amendment shall be made to the Constitution which will authorize or give to Congress the power to abolish or interfere, within any State, with the domestic institutions thereof, including that of persons held to labor or service by the laws of said State.

--12 United States Statutes at Large, 36th Congress, 2nd Session, 1861, p. 251.

Seems to me the "MORAL" North was ready to sell out the Black man for all time for money!

Strange how the selective memory of Yankees avoids this topic!
