The “13th Amendment Freedom Week Manual”  is a  guide  to follow while establishing the “Freedom Week”.   The manual features and highlights the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments and is unique in that it also list the members of the 38th congress, the 39th Congress and the 40th congress who voted for or against theses particular Amendments, respectfully.

This manual explains the difference between Independence and Freedom.  It recognizes the fact that many countries throughout the world celebrate their Independence but few celebrate freedom, including America.  That is because few countries have both independence and freedom at the same time.  A country may have both independence and freedom at the same time, or independence but not freedom, or neither independence nor freedom.  In America  we celebrate Independence Day each year but we have no occasion to celebrate freedom.  The 13th Amendment Freedom Week Movement is designed to  fill  that void.
