National Freedom Day, always observed on February 1st, celebrates freedom from slavery.  It also recognizes that America is a symbol of liberty.  It honors the signing by Abraham Lincoln of a joint House and Senate resolution that later became the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution   President Lincoln signed the Amendment outlawing slavery on February 1, 1865.  It was not ratified by the states, however, until later on December 18, 1865.
