National Freedom Day is a U.S. observance honoring the signing
by
Abraham Lincoln of a joint House and Senate resolution that
later became the
13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

President Lincoln signed the Amendment outlawing slavery on
February 1, 1865, although it was not ratified by the states until
later.
