how did the 13th,14th,and15th amendments effect former slaves in the south
these amendments sat that any slave in the country are no longer slaves and is going to be treated like a person who wasn't a slave this is because these amendments say no slavery in the united states the slaves have the right to be treated as a citizen and are allowed to vote
If you were part of the congress at that time what other law would you design to protect the former slaves
If i were part part of the congress i would make the law of all slaves should be treated fairly and if you miss treated the slaves you would go to jail
