Trivia Question:  What was the last state to ratify the 13th Amendment to the Constitution outlawing slavery, the year of ratification, and what year was it finally certified by the Federal government?

Answer:    Mississippi originally voted down ratifying the 13th Amendment in December 1865, but did ratify it in the state legislature March 16, 1995; however, it was not officially delivered to and certified by the Federal government until February 7, 2013.  This made Mississippi the last state to ratify and certify the 13th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
