Abstract

In this chapter, I present a new history of the adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment. I rely, in part, on some documentary evidence that has not yet been discussed and, unlike most other accounts, I place heavy emphasis on those details that seem most relevant to recovery the original meaning of the Fourteenth Amendment, including explaining the actual and apparent disagreements among supporters as to its meaning. That explanation and that recovery will be the subject of chapters 4 and 5.
