The 13th Amendment ended U.S. slavery in this country in 1865. North Carolina's copy rarely leaves the State Archives, but it will be exhibited at six state historic sites in June. The display at the historic Stagville plantation is in an original slave cabin. The "Juneteenth" tour by the N.C. Department of Cultural Resources marks the first time this document has been viewed publicly outside Raleigh. It commemorates "Juneteenth" (June 19th), which many African-Americans observe as the date in 1865 when the last of the enslaved learned they were free.
