25 With Confederate troops growing more and more desperate, southerners began to talk of peace. Lincoln sat down with Confederate leaders, but were unable to produce any results. One reason for that is because Lincoln and Congress had passed the 13thAmendment and it was passed in December of 1865.

26 It proclaimed the freedom of slaves in the ten states then in rebellion, thus applying to 3.1 million of the 4 million slaves in the U.S. at that time. The Proclamation made abolition a central goal of the war (in addition to reunion)

28 The Thirteenth Amendment outlawed slavery in the United States. Southerners were unwilling to accept a future without slavery. Lincoln’s next top priority: bringing Confederate states back to the Union.

29 December th Amendment is ratified April 2 nd, 1865 General Robert E. Lee surrenders to Ulysses S. Grant April 14 th, 1865 Lincoln is assassinated
