Other slave states:   Delaware and West Virginia - In Delaware slavery would not end until the
passage of the 13th amendment to the U. S. Constitution. Delaware would not formally recognize the
end of slavery until 1903. West Virginia abolished slavery on February 3, 1865. The Freedmen's
Bureau would help in the establishment of schools in Delaware and West Virginia but as in the case of
Maryland and D. C. their charter was limited to: ""all subjects relating to refugees and freedmen from
rebel States, or from any district of country within the territory embraced in operations of the army."
