Thirteenth Amendment

The first video states that nine states were needed for ratifiction which is untrue. There were 17 states at the time the amendment was proposed and 13 states would have been needed for ratificatio.

The originally proposed 13th Amendment was introduced in the Senate by Democratic–Republican Senator Philip Reed of Maryland, was passed on April 27, 1810, by a vote of 19–5 and sent to the House of Representatives for its consideration. It was passed by the House on May 1, 1810, by a vote of 87–3.[6] Having been approved by Congress, the proposed amendment was sent to the state legislatures for ratification and was ratified by the following states

Maryland – December 25, 1810

Kentucky – January 31, 1811

Ohio – January 31, 1811

Delaware – February 2, 1811

Pennsylvania – February 6, 1811

New Jersey – February 13, 1811

Vermont – October 24, 1811

Tennessee – November 21, 1811

North Carolina – December 23, 1811

Georgia – December 31, 1811

Massachusetts – February 27, 1812

New Hampshire – December 9, 1812

The amendment was rejected by Virginia (February 14, 1811)New York (March 12, 1812), Connecticut (May 13, 1813), and Rhode Island (September 15, 1814). No other state legislature has completed ratification action on it.

This would have prevented government officials from being granted special privileges and immunities that were unavailable to all of the people. The amendment targeted lawyers by banning them from holding any office  of public trust or compensation. Our founders wanted all  men to be equal under the law. 

This amendment was known as the Titles of Nobility Amendment and it would have prohibited government officials from accepting gifts titles or emoluments from any foreign power without the consent of Congress.

This amendment would have prevented members of the BAR Association from being eligible to run for offices of public trust or compensation. The originally proposed 13th Amendment needed to be ratified by 13 of the 17 states that existed when it was proposed in 1810.

The ratification of this amendment would have made it impossible for the financial elite and their lawyers from hijacking our Constitution.  Due to the efforts of the enemies of our republican form of government. they were able to expunge original  13th Amendment  from the Constitution while Congress was sound asleep.

In 1861 another 13th Amendment was passed by Congress and was submitted tot he states for ratification. This amendment is referred to as the Corwin Amendment and it guaranteed that Congress could not interfere with the institution of slavery. This amendment failed to be ratified by the requisite number of states and technically still pending.
