Transcript of Impact of the 13th, 14th & 15th amendment.

Impact of the 13th, 14th & 15th amendment.
15th Amendment
Ratified March 30, 1870
This amendment guaranteed African Americans the right to vote.
Ratified December 6, 1865.
This amendment abolished slavery.

How the 13th amendment impacted people back then?
Congress first opposed this amendment and said that federal government should not be given the right to interfere in the domestic affairs of the individual states.
Also, It did impact people who owned slaves in the South because they could no longer have slavery. They could no longer force African Americans to do work for them anymore.
How does the 13th Amendment impact people today?
My opinion is I do not think this amendment has impacted the people today besides the African Americans and that they are still allowed to do as they please and not work for whites.
How did the 14th amendment impact people back then?
It gave African Americans citizenship.
It allowed them to have more freedom and do things they could not do.
How does the 14th amendment impact people today?
I think it does kind of impact us today because if you are born in another country and come to live in the United States then you have to apply to see if you are eligible to be a United States Citizen.
How did the 15th amendment impact people back then?
It impacted African Americans back then because it gave them the right to have a vote in stuff that they weren't allowed to be able to vote in.
How does the 15th amendment impact people today?
I do not think this amendment impacts us today because it has been the same for years. African Americans are still allowed to vote as they did several years ago.
In conclusion, all three of these amendments gave African Americans rights they once did not have.
These amendments did have impacts back then, but now they do not have as much impact as they once did,
Why did I choose this topic?
I chose this topic because I wanted to learn more about these three amendments and I found it very interesting.
Where I go my information and Explain my model.
I got my information from a book called The Amendments to the Constitution and I also got information from www.factcite.com
