Why should people have voted for the 13th Amendment in the 1800s or early 1900s?

It was created to abolish slavery and involuntary servitude. It would free the slaves.

People don't vote for amendments. They are passed by Congress and the 13, 14th, 15th were passed right after the Civil War in 1867.
