American Constitutional Amendments Quiz
America’s current government was born with the ratification of the Constitution. This marked the dawn of a new republic the likes of which the world hadn’t seen since Rome.
As a guideline of how the nation’s government should operate, the Constitution became something of a linchpin to the function of the new American union. Even so, it was not an all-encompassing document. There was room left purposefully in the framework of the Constitution. After all, its framers understood that they couldn’t possibly predict every question or issue that could face their descendants. As such, the idea of constitutional amendments was added to the document.
Even during the original ratification of the Constitution, there were multiple amendments which needed to be added to it in order for the majority of American states to ratify it. These original amendments were attempts at safeguarding liberties demanded by a group of people who had just finished fighting for their freedom.
Later amendments would be added as the country evolved over time. New crises and questions required significant political forethought in order to solve. As of now, our Constitution seems to be quite expansive thanks to its amendments, but who knows what challenges will arise in the future that might need to be addressed through the creation of additional amendments.
In this quiz, we will ask you to identify the constitutional amendments by their contents as well as general trivia about them. This quiz is meant to inform as much as test. So, we hope you come of it knowing something new.
