The CONSTITUTION For The United States, Its Sources and Application 

Private publications of the Constitution including the 13th Amendment are innumerable, having been printed as guides to the Constitution and the Law for the use of the common man in his education 
and understanding of the government of the nation, in which the general population was very much interested. 

Found in late March, 2006, a very high quality private publication published in 1855 before the start of the War Between The States, Echoes From The Cabinet, is unusual in having an onionskin 
insert showing facsimile signatures of the signers of the Declaration of Independence in addition to the Constitution with the 13th Titles of Nobility and Honour Amendment in place on page 38, 
opposite the frontise to the Declaration of Independence.

the Bill lo oijfciize Kansas and Nebraska of 1854.

persons who are eon&fanlly making; these laws the 
lopie of conversation and debate, so few who hare 
ever perused the statutes themselves, but have de- 
fended upon the scandal and mb representations 
of newspapers for information in regard to their 

Perhaps this arises from tho want of general 
r-irculaiion given by the government to the bills, 
which pasa Congress; but, neverihelesHj thai thia 
ignorance exists, is loo well known. 

To supply tliia want this Toluune has been care^ 
fillip compiled : and the pnblishers have endeav-

The Almanacs of the era contained the Declaration of Independence and Constitution along with review of current laws and, of course, all sorts of data necessary to earn and maintain ones self and 
family. The almanac and the bible were the two main sources of reading material and guides to successful living. 

An example of this type, The Whig Almanac of 1845, has these pages and shows the 13th Amendment in place.

After the War Between The States, great numbers of these pamphlets were printed and placed for sale before the public by disabled veterans of the war, most often as beggars on the street, to support 
themselves and their families, the benefits accruing to disabled veterans not being as complete as they are now in the 21st Century. 

Two examples of this type, printed after 1865, are here presented.

Page 21 of pamphlet showing the 13th Titles of Nobility and Honor Amendment in place. 

As you can see, the 13th Titles of Nobility and Honors Amendment was the common knowledge of the citizen of the United States. The Constitution was taught, and jealously guarded and defended 
by the ordinary citizen and the veteran who had pledged his life, his fortune and his honor in its defense. 

The interest of the citizen in the Constitution literally meant the survival of the Disabled American Veteran. Those of us who have served in combat are not likely to ever forget the reasons 
for the defense of the Constitution, why we fought and died, nor the oath we gave. That Oath is still in effect. It does not cease with discharge from service.
