Constitution Hall Pass: “The Thirteenth Amendment”

Live chat Monday, November 30 – Friday, December 4, 7 a.m. – 6 p.m. EST

Give your students a “hall pass” to explore America’s civic holidays and constitutional history!  In our newest episode, “The Thirteenth Amendment ”, viewers learn about the ways the Constitutional Convention failed to address the issue of slavery, the buildup to the Civil War, and the abolition of slavery through the Thirteenth Amendment.  You’ll also find out more about the age of Reconstruction and the ways that the Thirteenth Amendment is still used by citizens today.

In honor of this historic anniversary, the center is celebrating with fascinating Town Hall Programs  and an exciting day of events at the museum.  Click here  for more information!
