Forward
These are the Congressional debates leading to the passage in Congressand the subsequent submission to the several states of what would becomethe fourteenth amendment to the United States Constitution. The lin preceding the Table of Contents may be used to view the actual imagesused in the processing of this text. Those images are readable but notsearchable. Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of this text.With such a volume of material some errors are inevitable. If you finderrors, please notify me at Duetmaster<at>aol-dot-com. This is electronicversion 1.0. When sufficient changes are found necessary I will updatethis document and change the version number.The purpose of making this document was simply to facilitate a greater understanding of the intent of those who implemented this change to our Constitution. I will not give my views on this subject as I wish everyonereading this material to come to their own carefully consideredconclusions. I will state, however, that the Senate debates are much moreinformative than those in the House. If your time is limited I wouldrecommend skipping the House debates. There is some interestinginformation in the House debates concerning the constitutional issues of the presidential actions during reconstruction but not so much directlyrelated to the meaning of the amendment itself.I have included three speeches from the Appendix to the CongressionalGlobe. All three were actually given before Congress and thus I feltnecessary to include them. There are other speeches recorded in theAppendix of the Congressional Globe but as far as I know none of theseother speeches were actually given before Congress and would thus havehad little to no effect in the debates. This is the reason I excluded them.
