The 13th Amendment to the Constitution, not the Emancipation Proclamation, formally abolished slavery in the United States. With the adoption of this amendment the United States found a final solution to the issue of slavery. The word "Duplicate" at the top indicates the bill was passed by Congress but had not yet been ratified by the states.
