The 1866 Civil Rights Act: Introduction

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lyman Trumbull,
author of the Civil Rights Act,

An Act to protect all Persons in the United States in their Civil Rights, and furnish the Means of their Vindication (Long Version: Italics, bold, underline, increase in font size emphasis – mine)

Civil Rights Act of 1866: This Congressional act solely entitled, a highly specialized, super citizenship to the only Americans whom had been dwelling in the British initiated-United States inherited, peculiar institution of dehumanizing, generations-destroying chattel slavery for 245 years, beginning in 1620 lasting until April 13, 1865, which was the end of the Civil War to end the practice.

This special law, which is the Progenitor of the 14th Amendment, entitled to the only non-immigrant peoples in the USA with a super citizenship, and mandated the federal government, most particular, the White House, i.e., the President with the authority and power to protect their civil rights…as the fate of the Union Republic depends on it.

This Congressional Act led to the drafting of the 14th Amendment, guaranteeing those civil rights.

The Civil Rights Act of 1866, passed by one vote over President Andrew Johnson’s veto, granted full citizenship to all persons born on American soil, except Native Americans who were exempt from taxation. The law gave former slaves the rights to own property, enforce contracts, and give evidence in courts–rights not specifically guaranteed in the Thirteenth Amendment, abolishing slavery.

This Act is actually the origin or the Progenitor and “Rosetta Stone” (interpreter and identifier of the Subject beneficiaries as a mother knows her own child) of the 14th Amendment, Section 1, by which it is codified into the US Constitution.

Section. 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof (speaking of slaves and their children-descendants) are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.

No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
