Over 11,700 proposed amendments have been introduced in the U.S. Congress. Only 27 have been adopted. We have corrected oversights and omissions (e.g. how many terms a President may serve), we have responded to social pressure (e.g. granting women’s suffrage), we have clarified delicate situations (e.g. how do we determine if a President is unable to serve) and in one case reversed a mistake (cancelling prohibition). We all know the first 10 as “The Bill of Rights” but the stories behind all 27 are fascinating and important. Join Professor Gary Midkiff for a study of our constitutional amendments.
Dates of class July 18th and 25th. This class will be held at the Barrington Area Library, Community Room, 505 N. Northwest Hwy, Barrington, IL.
