Thirteenth Amendment

Why is it that as a nation we don’t do more to remember that on this day in 1865 the Thirteenth Amendment to the Constitution was passed?  We remember every little trivial fact about the most obscure battles and yet we pay no attention to the most significant result of our Civil War.  I managed to find a short reference to it in a South African news source.

What a sad commentary.
