Summary
The Declaration of Independence announced equality as an American ideal, but it took the Civil War and the subsequent adoption of three constitutional amendments to establish that ideal as American law. The author of The Fiery Trial presents a timely history of the constitutional changes that built or compromised equality within America’s foundation, documenting alarming parallels between the Jim Crow era and the present day
