13thAmendmentByRichard Allen IIITo myself and many others, the 13thamendment (the abolishment of slavery)was and still is the most important amendment to the constitution.It still remainsto this day as America’s original sin. One of the reasons this is so significant is thatit opened the flood gates for innovation in America. From Lewis Latimer inventingthe carbon filament used in light bulbs. George E. Alcorn inventing the imaging X-Ray Spectrometer which revolutionized the way NASA was able to conduct research.To Lonnie Johnson inventing every child of the 90’s favorite water gun (The SuperSoaker), abolishing slavery enabled more people than ever before in contributing tothe success of this country.Beyond just innovation, the 13thamendment bled over into otheramendments.Such amendments were, the 14thamendment, 15thamendment, andthe 19thamendment, and the 24thamendment.Freeing thousands of blacks mayhave been the root cause for letting women vote and treating them as equals.
