The 1800s

The 14th amedment of the constitution granted children of all race citizenship at birth. The question that critics aruged was whether or not children who were born on U.S. soil should automatically become American citizens. In 1857 the supreme court case known as the Dred Scott case determinded that african americans were not considered citizens. However the 14th amendment overturned this rule, by stating that "all persons born or natualized in the United States are citizens of the U.S. and of the state wherein they reside."

14th Amendment

The 13th amendment addressed slavery. It "abolished slavery or involuntary servitude except in punishment for a crime; within the united states and its territories." Various states and territories either abolished slavery or prohibited it from the outset. The 1863 emancipation proclamation legally freed all slaves who were held in a rebellious state, but not those who were in union border states. During the reconstruction all slavery was abolished and prohibited giving african americans the freedom they desired.

13th Amendment

The 15th amendment of the reconstruction amendments addressed voting rights. This amendment was arranged to guarantee the rights of free slaves. The 15th amendment also prohibited the ndenying of any citizen to vote based on ethnicity, religion, or previous condition of servitude. Because of this right, african americans now had equal rights with whites.
