No slavery does not still exist in the US today. Slavery was over in 1865 in the US { but it does still exist in different parts of the world} after the Civil War. Former President Lincoln was the leader of the Civil War and he was the one who signed the bill to end slavery after the Civil War {so you can see that the Civil War was part of slavery}. If the north lost the Civil War slaves would probably still exist today and we would have more conflicts with the south. So remember slavery is over in the US, and it was over in 1865. But it still happens in different parts of the world. One example in the world which still has slavery is Asia.
