Amendments; 13, 18, and 19

No Slavery, No Alcohol, No Sexist Suffrage

13th Amendment

The 13th amendment was passed on January 31, 1865, and ratified on December 6 the same year. This amendment put an end to the long event many African Americans had suffered from for many years; slavery. It happened 8 months are the Civil War ended. This amendment is still important because African Americans are still free and have all the rights as their neighbors.

18th Amendment

The 18th amendment was the amendment mostly led by Christian women to make alcohol for anyone of any age to be illegal. It was ratified on January 16, 1919, and put into effect a day later. This amendment was brought about because women thought the alcohol affected the home life of the men's roles to be good husbands and fathers. This amendment is no longer important because it's no longer in effect. (This amendment didn't prohibit the consumption of alcohol just the production and selling of.)

19th Amendment

The 19th amendment granted all women the right to vote, or suffrage. On June 4th, 1919 this amendment was passed. It was ratified on August 18, 1920. Women figured if we can get a constitutional amendment passed (18th amendment) we should be able to vote. This amendment is important because today, women still vote.
