Question 1 of 4 Describe the conditions for freed slaves after the passing of the 13th Amendment. Remember to cite your facts and to give details. Discuss new conditions in regards to laws, opportunities, migration, racism and education. The 13th Amendment abolished slavery and servitude. After the passing of the 13th Amendment, African Americans still faced oppression in the South. Slave owners and slave states refused to recognize African Americans as free or equal. As a result, actions were taken to govern the activities of African Americans and limit their freedoms. Many farmers used sharecropping to keep African Americans in debt and working. Education was still separate and racism was very high in the south. Many African Americans migrated to the North. However, those in the South still faced oppression and racism from groups such as the KKK. Question 2 of 4 Does Lincoln deserve credit as “the Great Emancipator”? Why or why not?
