Question

TRUE OR FALSE The Fifteenth Amendment gave all United States citizens equal rights.

1 Answer

  • The 15th Amendment is what gave voting rights to African Americans. I would say false. It was ratified in 1870. That is because Women hadn't gotten there rights to vote in the National Election (19th Amendment) till 1920. In 1971 the 26th Amendment changed the voting age from 21 to 18 because people thought if boys could be drafted for the war they should be able to vote. So your answer is Flase. To give all United states citizens all equal rights they went through a lot of amendments over the years.
