Elizabeth Valdez 6th Period March 07, 2011 Amendment Citizenship Defined Reprensentation in Congress Penalty for Engaging in Insurrection Public Debt to penalize Southern states to keep former Confederate leaders from serving in the government forbid payment of the Confederacy's debt ensure payment of the war debts Section 1 talks about how any one born in the US are citizens and should not be denied equal protection of the law, and should not be denied life, liberty, or property without due process of law. Congress will have the power to enforce by using appropiate legislation. 14th July 9,1868 http://www.loc.gov/rr/program/bib/ourdocs/14thamendment.html Date of Passage & Ratification Date: Sections 1-5 Reduced the number of members the House of Representatives had if they denied citizens the right to vote. Although this was not forced later on the civil rights laws guranteed the vote to African Americans. Confederacy leaders where band from state or federal offices unless Congress revoked the ban. After Reconstruction few Confederate leaders where allowed to return. The debt by the federal government during the Civil War could not be questioned by the South and was also valid, but the debt by the Confederacy was illegal. So former slaveholders could not collect money for the loss of their slaves. Works

http://www.nationalcenter.org/brown.html Info: The case was about how whites & blacks where seperated in schools & they where not treated equal like the 14th Amendment states that they should be. One problem that this caused for the black children was they where not learning as well as the others because they where denied the opportunity that others had. The Boards of Education's defense was that the school was only preparing them for the segregation they where going to encounter in their adulthood. In Topeka, Kansas, a black third-grader named Linda Brown had to walk one mile through a railroad switchyard to get to her black elementary school, even though a white elementary school was only seven blocks away. Linda's father, Oliver Brown, tried to enroll her in the white elementary school, but the principal of the school refused. http://www.watson.org/~lisa/blackhistory/early-civilrights/brown.html Enforcement Background Who When Why What Was the amendment... 14th
