HISTORY FACTS * Do you know the first 10 amendments? * Screen60




The U.S. Constitution is among the most important and esteemed texts in American history. Since its ratification on June 21, 1788, this living document has served as the groundwork for the country’s government on both the federal and state levels. It’s also constantly evolving: The Constitution has been amended 27 times over the years, beginning with the certification of the first 10 amendments, known as the Bill of Rights, in 1791. Here’s a closer look at each of those first 10 amendments to the U.S. Constitution.

The First Amendment Was Introduced by James Madison


Long before he assumed the role of commander in chief, America’s fourth President, James Madison, introduced the Bill of Rights to Congress, starting with the First Amendment, which protects freedom of speech, religion, the press, assembly, and the right to petition the government. Madison drafted the Bill of Rights in 1789. A representative of Virginia, he based the First Amendment’s text on the Virginia Declaration of Rights, as well as the English Bill of Rights and the Magna Carta.

The Second Amendment Was Agreed Upon as a Compromise


The right to bear arms as defined by the Second Amendment has been a controversial topic for ages, even dating back to when it was first agreed upon. Like much of the Bill of Rights, the final text was a compromise between pro-government Federalists and rival Anti-Federalists, who argued over whether an adequately armed population could deter potential government oppression. Anti-Federalists fought for a Second Amendment that preserved the right of the people to fight back against government oppression, while Federalists maintained that those fears were overblown.

The Third Amendment Has Never Been Argued in Front of the Supreme Court


While many constitutional amendments have been the subject of heated judicial debate, the Third Amendment has never been the focus of a U.S. Supreme Court case. The amendment forbids the government from forcing citizens to house soldiers in their private homes without their consent during peacetime. It is one of the more universally agreed-upon elements of the Constitution.

An Exemption to the Fourth Amendment Was Created for Cars


The Fourth Amendment was ratified in 1791, establishing rules against warrantless searches by law enforcement. Given that the amendment was ratified long before cars existed, it wasn’t until the 1925 case Carroll v. United States that vehicle searches were first debated on a judicial level. The case ultimately established an exemption to the Fourth Amendment that permits warrantless vehicle searches, provided there is probable cause to suspect there is contraband inside.


“Due Process” Was Added to the Fifth Amendment at New York’s Request


The “due process” clause — which guarantees fair treatment under the law — is an integral component of the Fifth Amendment, which [url=https://constitution.findlaw.com/amendment5.html#:~:text=The Fifth Amendment breaks down,by the government without compensation.]protects[/url] those accused of criminal activity against self-incrimination and prohibits “double jeopardy” (being prosecuted twice for the same offense twice), among other protections. In essence, the concept of due process ensures that every American will be treated fairly in court, but it may never have existed if not for a request made by delegates from the state of New York, which had a similar concept included in its own Bill of Rights Statute. The request led James Madison to draft due process into the Fifth Amendment.

The Sixth Amendment Didn’t Include State Court Cases for 172 Years


The Sixth Amendment protects the rights of those facing criminal charges, such as the right to a fair and speedy trial by an impartial jury, as well as legal representation. It has provided the right to a free defense counsel on a federal level since its ratification in 1791, but it wasn’t until 1963 that the amendment was expanded to include felony cases facing state prosecution. The expansion was a result of the landmark decision in the case Gideon v. Wainwrightin which the court ruled that states must provide attorneys to any criminal defendant unable to afford their own counsel.

The Seventh Amendment Still Applies to Cases That Exceed a Value of Just $20


The Seventh Amendment guarantees the right to a trial by jury in federal civil cases, but only regarding issues where the value exceeds $20 — a stipulation that’s still in place today. The amendment was ratified in 1791, so in modern terms, that $20 would be roughly equal to around $650. However, the text of the amendment still reads “twenty dollars.”

The Eighth Amendment Was Taken Nearly Verbatim From the English Bill of Rights


The Eighth Amendment — which reads, “Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted” — was taken nearly verbatim from the English Bill of Rights of 1689. While many other amendments from the Bill of Rights were influenced by the British Constitution, the Eighth Amendment is notable for its highly similar wording.


The Ninth Amendment Doesn’t List Any Specific Rights


While the first eight amendments clearly define the rights they’re meant to protect, the Ninth Amendment is significantly more abstract in nature. It was put in place to reaffirm that rights shouldn’t be denied solely because they aren’t explicitly stated in the Constitution. The entirety of the amendment reads, “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”

The 10th Amendment Has Never Been Invoked to Protect Individual Citizens


The 10th Amendment essentially establishes the concept of states rights, and underscores the limits of the federal government as restricted to the powers enumerated in the Constitution. The text reads, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” Though the 10th Amendment has been invoked many times with regard to protecting state’s rights, it’s [url=https://constitutioncenter.org/the-constitution/amendments/amendment-x/interpretations/129#:~:text=United States (1992)%2C the,States by the Constitution.%E2%80%9D The]never been invoked[/url] by an individual citizen in a case against the federal government.
