Was bribery instrumental to the approval of the Thirteenth Amendment?

The movie _[Lincoln](https://imdb.com/title/tt0443272/)_ suggests there was a fair bit of bribery involved in the passing of the [Thirteenth Amendment] to the Constitution of the United States. Are there actual records of this? Any sound history books or articles that discuss it?
