  10. 10. Summary<br />My basic knowledge of the fourteenth amendment was that the amendment states that everyone has a right to a fair trial no matter how guilty you know that individual is. We learned that it was adopted after the civil war as one of the reconstruction amendments. The amendment covers many different clauses and rights. For example the citizenship clause and the substantive due process. Although we learned a good bit about this amendment, we would still like to learn more about this very important amendment.<br />
