Happy birthday to the 14th Amendment

Historian T.J. Stiles published a thrilling, moving birthday greeting to the 14th Amendment in today’s New York Times.

It’s also a biography, a history of the amendment and a dissertation on its meaning and current status. I learned so much I hadn’t known.

It’s titled “The Constitutional Amendment That Reinvented Freedom,” and is the best anything I’ve read in a couple of weeks, so I invite you to read it, too.
