On February 26, 1869, an amendment was passed by Congress. This was the Fifteenth amendment. The amendment guarantees African-American men to vote, to those who couldn’t at first by the Thirteenth and Fourteenth amendments. After eleven months has past, the Fifteenth was ratified on February 3, 1870; stating that all citizens, no matter the race, color, or position, has the right to vote. To have an amendment to pass, two out of three houses must deem the amendment if it is necessary. Currently there is twenty-seven amendments in the Constitution. These amendments are equal rights for a citizen in the United States.
The party that wanted to ratify this amendment were the Republican Party at this time. After the death of Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant, from the Republican party, decide to run for the election of 1868 (Congress). Winning the Election just from two percent, President Grant realizes that the winning votes came from Southern African American voters. He wanted to give the Republicans the upper hand in the future by allowing them to ensure the votes that were denied. Obviously, this amendment is very bias due to it being mostly beneficial to the Republican Party. Although the fifteenth amendment seems solely beneficial to the Republicans, it benefits both, the people and the parties.
