    • A state of extreme confusion or disorder; an uproar.  As in: Pandemonium broke out after the jury found the man not guilty.

This Day in History: 1865 – The 13th Amendment to the US Constitution, officially ending the institution of slavery, is ratified.  “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.”  With these words, the single greatest change wrought by the Civil War was officially noted in the Constitution.

Fact of the Day:  Abraham Lincoln’s overwhelming victory in the 1864 presidential election set in motion the events leading to the ratification of the 13th Amendment.  The House passed the measure in January 1865 and it was sent to the states for ratification.  The House passed the measure in January of 1865 and it was then sent to the states for ratification.  When Georgia ratified the amendment in December of 1865, the institution of slavery officially ceased to exist in the United States.

Strange, but True:  The institution of slavery led to the founding of certain sects of Christianity, most namely the Quakers, who believe all subjects are equal in the eyes of God, and thus consider slavery a sin.
