(In my fifth grade history class we are discussing the civil war.)

Teacher: now, the emancipation proclamation freed the slaves-

Me: um, excuse me miss, but didn’t the thirteenth amendment free the slaves, the emancipation proclamation only freed the slaves in the rebelled regions in which it had no power.

Teacher: what? That preposterous the emancipation proclamation freed the slaves.

(Fast forward 15 minutes)

Teacher: (reading from the textbook) the thirteenth amendment meant freed the slaves.

Me: excuse me but could you repeat please.

Teacher: all right all right, you were correct I concede that to you.

(I ended up correcting her many times over the school year)
