New Rights Granted to All US citizens!

The Miller News - August 1868 - Paul Miller

  • The Fourteenth Amendment was passed! Here’s what is says:
  • All persons that were born or transferred citizenship in the US are rightful citizens.
  • No state can pass any laws that take away rights from its citizens.
  • No citizen will be deprived of life, liberty, or property without the process of law.
  • No citizen will be denied equal protection of laws.
  • This will really help African-Americans, since Amendment 13 banned slavery. Now, they will not be denied rights and legally be treated as a normal person.
