Wow, it is about time!

Wow, it is about time!

According to the Huffington Post, Mississippi finally has ratified the 13th Amendment of the Constitution which bans slavery. After 148 years since three-fifths of the states voted to ban slavery, Mississippi has finally joined the rest of them. This state was the last of the states to ratify the amendment, and it is about time to be honest.
According to the article, the legislatures of Mississippi were inspired by the movie “Lincoln,” and that is what finally pushed them through the door into ratifying the amendent. Thank you Mississippi for finally getting with the program!
