The U.S. Civil War from 1861-1865 resulted in a forging of a second constitution that in time transformed the structures of American governance. With the passage of the Fourteenth Amendment, the nation recast the relationship between the state and subordinated people. This revolutionary amendment created a national citizenship, set terms for southern states to reenter the union, codified new powers for the federal government, and spurred an enduring struggle for due process and equality under law that continues until today. The Fourteenth Amendment has no single legacy.
