Curator Tour: The U.S Constitution and the End of American Slavery
Join curator Olga Tsapina for a private tour of the exhibition "The U.S. Constitution and the End of American Slavery," a display of rare works tracing the road to the passage of the 13th Amendment.

Just after 3 p.m. on Jan. 31, 1865, Samuel Colfax, the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, called for the vote on a joint resolution that would amend the Constitution to abolish slavery in the United States. Timed to commemorate the sesquicentennial of the Thirteenth Amendment, this exhibition explores the long, tortuous, and bloody road that led to that fateful vote. With more than 80 items, drawn entirely from The Huntington's collection of historical materials, it features rare manuscripts, books, and prints, including letters by George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln.
