This book explores the significance of the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments, both in the context of when they were added to the U.S. Constitution in the 19th century, and when the amendments later became crucial aspects of American jurisprudence; and explains the foundations on which the rights of American citizens―especially black citizens―are based.

Book Description:

The 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments represent the culmination of the legal revolution of the 1860s—a revolution which advanced equality more than any other legal development in United States's history by providing the legal foundation for black freedom, and by being later extended to other minority groups seeking protection of their rights.
