Constitution Post 5- The Amendments
In this post I will tell you three of the twenty-six Amendments. The first ten Amendments are called The Bill of Rights. These Amendments spell out the liberties and rights all Americans have.
- The tenth Amendment says that any power not given to the federal government belongs to the states and to the people.
- The thirteenth Amendment abolished (got rid of) slavery. This Amendment was passed after the Civil War.
- The nineteenth Amendment gives women the right to vote in all state and federal elections.
As you can see this is not all of the Amendments. This is just three of the twenty-six Amendments of our country as I said at the top of the page.

Hi world, SE here. I am in 7th grade. I love to play sports, and my favorites are soccer, volleyball, and basketball. I am pretty short, though I am the goalie for my soccer team. I really like to swim. I also love to read, and in the summer I love to sit out in the sun and read by the pool. I love the Philadelphia sports teams, though my favorite team to watch has to be the Phillies. Well I hope you learned some things about me! Thanks for visiting my blog.
