A New Birth of Freedom: The Forgotten History of the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments

by Nathan Newman and J.J. Gass

This paper offers a critical analysis of recent Supreme Court "federalism" jurisprudence, which purports to justify rollbacks of civil rights by appeal to the original intent of the Constitution. The authors demonstrate that the Court's "states' rights" agenda is inconsistent with the extensive federal power exercised in the pre-Civil- War era and would be unrecognizable to the Framers of the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments, who sought to harness that power to effectuate Lincoln's promise of a "new birth of freedom."
