Text of the REAL 13th Amendment:

Nearly as soon as I finished this article I was contacted with more information.  Think of this as a form of live blogging. If there are more documented insights, please send them on!  They are much appreciated.  

"If any citizen of the United States shall accept, claim, receive, or retain any title of nobility or honour, or shall without the consent of Congress, accept and retain any present, pension, office, or emolument of any kind whatever, from any Emperor, King, Prince, or foreign Power, such person shall cease to be a citizen of the United States, and shall be incapable of holding any office of trust or profit under them, or either of them."

Facts can be inconvenient, they can refute the comfy box in which we live. But facts are facts, like the speed of light.

A fact is provable. It is not opinion. It does not care if it makes you uncomfortable or refutes your senior thesis in high school. It just is.

In a matter such as the removal of the Original 13th Amendment from public view the best evidence is documentation that shows it as having been public knowledge, widely accepted and referred to, at the time. That evidence exists.

Here are examples of books printed between 1819 and 1867. All include the text for the 13th Amendment as reproduced above. The text is identical in each case. Clearly, since the 13th Amendment now referred to was passed by the Thirty-eighth Congress, on the 31st day of January, 1865, and was declared, in a proclamation of the Secretary of State, dated the 18th of December of that same year, this is not an oversight.

Here you can see with your own eyes the original 13th Amendment appearing in a book printed not five years before.

(After writing this article I was contacted by an individual who referred me to a site that quotes extensively from, "

Legislative Extracts Relative to Amendment Of The
Constitution of the United States of America

Commonwealth of Virginia
1810 to 1819

The ongoing dialogue on the adoption of the 13th Amendment makes the chain of logic involved very clear and answers the questions as to why the Amendment was adopted. The rejection of a society that enforced classes through titles of nobility began much earlier in American history, in fact was at the foundation of the settlement of the New England colonies.  The Leveler traditions had added to the ongoing issues on the relationship of the individual with God, resulting in radical changes in the Puritan dogma from the time of the first generation of settlement until the Revolution.  The underlying theme of individual rights, granted by God has always been the spiritual awareness that all humanity are One, making divisions based on class the antithesis of American philosophy.  Furthermore, the British had burned Washington D. C. and the White House.  That, and their influence in monetary matters concerned the many individuals who had now fought two wars for their freedom.  

 
That leaves fewer questions to be answered.

The Original 13th Amendment is explained through contemporary events and  through the words of those who voted it into law.

Was there a 13th Amendment passed soon after the Constitution was ratified? A The evidence is an irrefutable Yes. The original 13th Amendment appears in all copies of the Constitution for The United States of America printed between 1819 and 1867. After that date the 13th Amendment referred to in all copies of the US Constitution printed previously is replaced with no explanation with the very different 13th Amendment passed in 1867, which refers to slavery.
