* Thaddeus Stevens, sharp-tongued and rather {{Jerkass}} abolitionist, rushes home with the official bill of the 13th Amendment he championed so much. [[spoiler: He shows it to his mixed-race housekeeper Lydia Hamilton Smith, whom he considers his common-law wife. They share a tender moment as they go to bed: Thaddeus with his wig and frown off for the only time in the movie, Lydia reading each section with happy tears. Awww, the things one does for love... ]]

* The "Battle Cry of Freedom" revelry spills out into the streets as ol' Tad gimps back home after the vote is done, handing his domestic partner (who would be his wife if she wasn't black) the passed amendment document to read as they settle in for the night.

* Congressman Yeaman. Stevens basically bullies the meek congressman into voting in favor of the amendment. When he is initially called to vote, he so meekly states his vote that the roll caller couldn't hear him. Suddenly, when asked to clarify, he grows a spine, and ''owns'' his vote. He yells his aye vote as long as his lungs would allow, as the other proponents echo him and pat him on the shoulder vigorously while the opponents start yelling "Traitor!" in response. At the end when the passing vote is confirmed, he joins in the revelry, singing "Battle Cry of Freedom" with his fellow aye-voters.
