The above title page and page 74 as well as the picture below were taken at the Supreme Court Law Library in Concord New Hampshire. Below is a close up of the SEAL found on that title page. Click here to download a PDF copy of this 1815 – Vol I – Laws of the United States of America
Another publication put out by “The United States of America” which proves that the Original 13th Amendment was fully ratified is the “1825 Military Laws of the United States” See page 16 of this downloadable Google Book.
The following picture is a screenshot combination of pages 477 and 478 of the document found at the Library of Congress. It shows that the United States Legislature considered the 13th Amendment fully ratified by three fourths of the 17 States and goes on to list those States and the date of their ratification.
This Amendment was lawfully ratified, let they that disagree bring forth the Congressional Records and prove their claim or forever keep silent..!!!
