AMENDMENT RATIFIED ON THIS DAY IN 1865

On December 6, 1865, the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution,
officially ending the institution of slavery, was ratified. “Neither slavery
nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the
party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States,
or any place subject to their jurisdiction.” With these words, the single
greatest change wrought by the
Civil War was officially noted in the
Constitution.

The ratification came eight months after the end of the war, but it
represented the culmination of the struggle against slavery.

Approaching the Colorado foothills of the Rocky Mountains during his second exploratory expedition, Lieutenant Zebulon Pike spots a distant mountain peak
that looks “like a small blue cloud.” The mountain was later named Pike’s Peak
in his honor.

Pike’s explorations of the newly acquired Louisiana Territory of the U.S. began before the nation’s first western explorers, Lewis and Clark, had returned from
their own expedition up the
Missouri River. Pike was more of a professional
military man than either Lewis or Clark, and he was a smart man who had
taught himself Spanish, French, mathematics, and elementary science. When
the governor of Louisiana Territory requested a military expedition to explore
the headwaters of the
Mississippi, General James Wilkinson picked Pike to
lead it.
