The promise of a new American Founding after the Civil War was articulated by the 13th, 14th, and 15th Constitutional Amendments. While they rid the nation of slavery, their aspiration to provide equal rights to more citizens largely failed in the face of violent opposition, blinkered judicial rulings, and widespread indifference. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare
