>South Carolina seceded from the Union in December of 1860, signalling
>the onset of the Civil War. In March, 1861 President Abraham Lincoln
>was inaugurated.
>Later in 1861, another proposed amendment, also numbered thirteen, was
>signed by President Lincoln. This was the only proposed amendment that
>was ever signed by a president. That resolve to amend read: "ARTICLE
>THIRTEEN, No amendment shall be made to the Constitution which will
>authorize or give to Congress the power to abolish or interfere, within
>any State with the domestic institutions thereof, including that of
>persons held to labor or service by the laws of said State." (In other
>words, President Lincoln had signed a resolve that would have permitted
>slavery, and upheld states' rights.) Only one State, Illinois, ratified
>this proposed amendment before the Civil War broke out in 1861. <snip>
