Slavery was officially abolished in the United States in 1865 (by the enactment of the 13th Amendment to the Constitution), although many states abolished slavery for themselves at various dates between 1777 and 1864 and the transport of new slaves from Africa to the US was stopped as early as 1808. Although the Founding Fathers agreed to end the importation of new slaves after 1808, the smuggling of slaves into the US continued. Based on the invention of the cotton gin, more slaves were needed to work the plantations to harvest the ever increasing demand for slaves.
Slavery ended in the United States 6 months after the civil war with the 13th Amendment. December 6, 1865.
In the US, slavery ended in December of 1865 when the 13th Amendment was ratified.
The Blacks were officially freed from slavery by the Thirteenth Amendment, passed by the Senate on Apr. 8, 1864, passed by the House on Jan.31,1865 and proclaimed as adopted on Dec. 6,1865.
This happened for many people when President Abraham Lincoln issued the first Emancipation Proclamation on September 22, 1862. The official end of all slavery came in December, 1865, with passage of the 13th Amendment to the US Constitution.
The legal end to slavery was in December of 1865 when the 13th Amendment was ratified.
