The Abbeville Institute: Join Professor Jesse Merriam for a discussion on the 14th Amendment.

 Abbeville Institute

No Amendment has done more to distort the original Constitution than the 14th Amendment. Eric Foner considers it to be the basis of a new founding of the United States. But is that because of its original intent or because the federal court system has used it in a way its authors never intended. Also, what can be done to counteract this ongoing affront to the original Constitution?


Jesse Merriam is an associate professor at Patrick Henry College in Purcellville, Virginia, and a Washington Fellow at the Claremont Institute's Center for the American Way of Life. He holds a J.D. from the George Washington University School of Law and a Ph.D in political science from Johns Hopkins University.


The event begins promptly at 7 PM Eastern on January 27, 2022.

  1. This is a topic of great importance to all Americans. Each time I have tried Zoom results in my phone or computer freaking out. Therefore unfortunately I won't be 'attending'. I do hope the transcription (including Q&A) will be available afterwards.

  2. Try it again as we never know. I have it on my calendar.
