The following images have been taken from the web site
of the TONA Research Committee:
www.amendment-13.org/publications.html#mo.

We owe them a debt of great gratitude for their marvelous efforts.

These images show what the TONA Research Committee discovered in the archives of the various States and Territories.

The books were published from 1816 through 1876 and clearly show the inclusion of the "Missing" 13th Amendment, "Titles of Nobility and Honour," to the Constitution for the united States.

"If any citizen of the United States shall accept, claim, receive, or retain any title of nobility or honour, or shall without the consent of Congress, accept and retain any present, pension, office, or emolument of any kind whatever, from any emperor, king, prince, or foreign power, such person shall cease to be a citizen of the united States, and shall be incapable of holding any office of trust or profit under them, or either of them." - The true 13th Amendment to the Constitution for the united states of America

As each year has gone by the Committee has found more publications. And, as images from the newly found publications are made available they are posted to the web site.

In each of the years indicated there is positive proof that a publication of the Laws of the indicated State or Territory was printed that included the true 13th Amendment in its proper place as a valid part of the Constitution for the united States of America. Years shown in blue are the years for which the publications have been located and for which there are images printed herein.

Chronology of Events

The 13th Amendment was proposed in the 11th congress, 2nd session in 1810. The proposed Amendment was then sent to the States for Ratification. At the time there were 17 States and ¾ had to ratify. This meant 13 States were required for Ratification.

Virginia
Ratified - Mar. 12, 1819

but, the publication of the Laws of Virginia with the 13th Amendment in its proper place
provides the verification that Virginia did indeed ratify the 13th Amendment

Even though we used the date of March 12, 1819 as the ratification date by Virginia
there is solid, irrefutable evidence that Virginia ratified the 13th Amendment
very early in the process

Documentation has been located in both the Senate and House records
of the State of New Hampshire that they were in possession of a Letter
from the Governor of Virginia indicating passage

The images of these pages will be found in the New Hampshire display

in1915 the Federal Congress authorized the publication of the United States Laws
