Why did the Civil War amendments have little effect in the South until 1965?

The Thirteenth, Fourteenth, and Fifteenth Amendments were important to the Civil Rights Movement. The Thirteenth Amendment ended slavery in the United States. The Fourteenth Amendment allowed Blacks to have the same rights as Whites. The Fifteenth Amendment allowed Blacks to vote. They had little effect in the south until 1965 when the Civil War ended.

Why did you have to make the 27th amendment?

Essentially, the 27th Amendment to the US Constitution has little to do with the average person. It deals with whether or not the Congress can vote itself a raise until the next Representative election.

Which amendment guarantees the right for all Americans to bear arms?

The Second Amendment addresses what we now call arms. You should be aware that this was not done a few years ago but during the time of slavery. The real reason the Second Amendment was ratified, was to preserve the slave patrol militias in the southern states, which was necessary to get Virginia's vote for the constitution. Blacks outnumbered whites in large areas, and the state militias were used to both prevent and to put down slave uprisings. "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." Little did Madison realize that one day in the future weapons-manufacturing corporations, newly defined as "persons" by a Supreme Court (some have called dysfunctional), would use his slave patrol militia amendment to protect their "right" to manufacture and sell assault weapons used to murder schoolchildren.

How did the 13 amendment help the freed slaves?

it abolished slavery, and the freedmen and slaves were free without ever having to get back to working on plantations, but some were forced to because they had little rights and oppurtunites.

What are two ways of proposing an amendment to the Constitution?

There are two methods: 1. A specific amendment is written and proposed by 2/3 of the Congress. Then the proposed amendment is sent for ratification to either the state legislatures or state ratifying conventions. Congress decides whether state legislatures or state ratifying conventions are to be used. For the proposed amendment to become effective 3/4 of the legislatures or conventions must ratify it. 2. A convention for proposing amendments is called for by Congress on application by 2/3 of the states for such a convention. Specific amendments are written by the convention and sent to the states for ratification. Even if the proposed amendments come from a convention rather than from Congress, it is Congress which decides whether ratification is to be by state legislatures or state ratifying conventions. Again, for the proposed amendments to become effective, 3/4 of the legislatures or conventions must ratify the proposed amendments. To date the first method, proposal by Congress itself, is the only method by which amendments have been proposed. None of the existing amendments have been proposed by a national convention. To date every amendment to the Constitution with the exception of the Twenty First Amendment (Repeal of the Eighteenth Amendment), has been ratified by state legislatures. The Twenty First Amendment is the only current amendment that has been ratified by state ratifying conventions.
