this is because Lincoln only freed slaves in rebellious states (the south) with the 13th ammendment. So if you where a white Southerner,rebelling against the federal government (the union) why is it right that a president in Washington DC tell a white southern farmer in Mississippi that he should give up his slaves. and then adding the 14th ammendment only added fuel to the fire. this caused southerners to rebel against this new law.
Someone answer as soon as possible please. Why do you think white southerners resisted the 13th and especially the 14th amendments to the constitution?
