On this day in 1865

Over the unanimous opposition of House Democrats, a Republican controlled Congress passed the 13th Amendment which abolished slavery.

Almost 100 years later Republicans finally pushed through (over the almost unanimous opposition from Democrats) the Civil Rights Act to protect blacks from racial discrimination and the Voting Rights Act which did away with the Democrats Literacy tests and Poll Taxes.

In November 2008, blacks voted themselves right back onto the plantation.
