affiliation not provided to SSRN
The Fourteenth Amendment was passed by the 39th Congress on June 13, 1866. It was proclaimed in effect on July 28, 1868, by the then Secretary of State of the United States, William H. Steward.
Section 1, Clause 2 of the Fourteenth Amendment changed the wording in Article IV, Section 2, Clause 1 of the Constitution of the United States. The Supreme Court of the United States gave notice of this before the Slaughterhouse Cases. Other courts followed suit.
The wording in Article IV, Section 2, Clause 1 was changed from "The citizens of each state shall be entitled to privileges and immunities of citizens IN the several States" to "The citizens of each state shall be entitled to privileges and immunities of citizens OF the several States." Article IV, Section 2, Clause 1 of the Constitution of the United States was converted from the Comity Clause into a Citizenship Clause. Article IV, Section 2, Clause 1 now related to a citizen of the several States.
