1.) Though we celebrate that “all men are created equal,” the spirit of this egalitarian creed only slowly embodied itself in Constitutional law. Originally, women, blacks, Catholics, and white men with little property could not vote. Abigail Adams wrote a letter to her husband John Adams on March 31, 1776, asking him to “remember the Ladies.” They wouldn’t be remembered until the 19th Amendment, nor black men until the 15th.
