National Freedom Day information

      National Freedom Day is celebrated in the United States every year on February 1. On this day in 1865, U.S. President Abraham Lincoln signed a congressional resolution to introduce the 13th Amendment into the U.S. Constitution abolishing slavery.

      The Resolution of Congress on introducing the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution to abolish slavery was: «Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.»
      This amendment was approved on December 1865, and the National Freedom Day was first marked on February 1, 1942, although by that time the holiday had not been officially established yet.
      Since then it has become a tradition to place a wreath at the Liberty Bell - one of the symbols of independence and freedom in the United States. On June 30, 1948 President Harry Truman signed a document in which the official celebration of National Freedom Day on February 1 was declared.

      National Freedom Day is celebrated in all the states, although it is not a public holiday. Wreath-laying ceremony at the Liberty Bell invariably takes place every year. National Freedom Day celebrations include musical and theatrical performances, showing documentary and feature films, literary readings - they are all united by the theme of freedom.
