058 - Breaking The Chains: The Passage Of The 13th Amendment


About this episode: 

Shockingly brief given the lives lost, cost, and national trauma, but the American Civil War’s two greatest significances are that the nation was preserved and that slavery was ended. This is the story of a major step in ridding this country's association with “the peculiar institution.” This is the story of the labored steps for the passage of the 13th Amendment.

Horace Greeley

Lyman Trumbull
