"The amendments to the U.S. Constitution passed in the aftermath of the Civil War not only abolished slavery but reshaped the reach of the Constitution. Kurt Lash has collected documents ranging from campaign speeches and party platforms through personal diaries of leading (and obscure) figures, to the Confederate states' declarations of secession that help us understand the history and meaning of these critical amendments: the 13th (abolishing slavery), 14th (citizenship, due process, equal protection), and 15th (expands right to vote). This is a two-volume set: the first volume offers broad background, context, and themes (The Ante-bellum Constitution); and material related to the 13th Amendment, while the second volume covers the 14th and 15th Amendments, with the 14th on balance dominating the discussion due to its importance and complexity"-- Provided by the publisher
