On this episode of This Day In History, Tony and Armand are here to discuss the official end of slavery in the United States. On this day, the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution is abolished when Georgia becomes the 27th state to ratify the amendment, thus bringing swift political and economic changes to the southern states. Also, we learn about the significance of Pride's Purge during the Second English Civil War, and United States President Teddy Roosevelt is speaking softly, but carrying a big stick. It all happened on This Day In History!
