January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month.
The following is an excerpt from President Obama's proclamation declaring January to be National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month:

Nearly a century and a half ago, President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation — a document that reaffirmed the noble goals of equality and freedom for all that lie at the heart of what it means to live in America. In the years since, we have tirelessly pursued the realization and protection of these essential principles. Yet, despite our successes, thousands of individuals living in the United States and still more abroad suffer in silence under the intolerable yoke of modern slavery. During National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, we stand with all those who are held in compelled service; we recognize the people, organizations, and government entities that are working to combat human trafficking; and we recommit to bringing an end to this inexcusable human rights abuse.

Still Slavery?!?!?! Lord, Help Us, Jesus! Did or did not President Abraham Lincoln end it by--->
Washington, D.C.
January 1, 1863 President Lincoln read the first draft of this document to his Cabinet members on July 22, 1862. After some changes, he issued the preliminary version on September 22, which specified that the final document would take effect January 1, 1863. Slaves in Confederate states which were not back in the Union by then would be free, but slaves in the Border States were not affected.
The most controversial document in Lincoln's presidency, its signing met with both hostility and jubilation in the North. After the preliminary version was made public, Lincoln noted, "It is six days old, and while commendation in newspapers and by distinguished individuals is all that a vain man could wish, the stocks have declined, and troops come forward more slowly than ever. This, looked soberly in the face, is not very satisfactory." However, on the day he approved the final version, Lincoln remarked, "I never, in my life, felt more certain that I was doing right, than I do in signing this paper."


Slavery should have never began, but unfortunately it did and there is yet to be away to go back in time to change anything, besides that; once we are able to time travel. Most likely, there will be laws for and against, especially against what can be change.
Since changing the past is not possible, let us consentrate on changing what can be changed--The Present. We can  change the present. After all, we owe it to the future to make things better
