  • Setting
  • This took place in the United States right after the Civil War.
  • The 14th Amendment was added to the constitution on July 9, 1868, which granted citizenship to all that were born or naturalized in the United States. This included he freedmen who were former slaves.

  • We are: -Free -Citizens -No longer beaten -Protected by the law -Equal rights
  • Audience
  • -No more slavery -We are all equal
  • Significance
  • The 14th amendment was important to the African Americans because they were going to be free which meant no more beatings, cruelty, and no more slavery. If they were going to be able to work then they're going to earn money which is also good.
