It would be the "Ninth Amendment" that states that the rights in the U.S. Constitution are not the only rights that citizens possess, since the Founders wanted many rights to be reserved for the people and the states.

What was one way Progressives wanted to regulate railroads?: - by limiting the fees railroads could charge for carrying freight - by limiting the number of states through which railroads could travel - by determining the wages paid to railroad workers - by determining the amount of taxes the railroads had to pay

The correct answer is by limiting the fees railroads could charge for carrying freight.

Members of the Progressive Party were often in favor of government intervention in the economy. This was especially true for business practices that can be seen as manipulative or harmful to American citizens. To stop this from happening in the railroad industries, Progressives focused on putting a limit on the fees that businesses could charge for carrying freight. The goal of this type of legislation revolves around the idea that limiting the cost of carrying freight would ultimately increase the amount of individuals being able to participate in this transaction.

The two Supreme Court cases, Plessy v. Ferguson and Brown v. Board of Education, addressed which of these issues? A. freedom of speech under the 1st Amendment B. equal protection under the 14th Amendment C. due process under the 5th Amendment D. probable cause under the 4th Amendment

Correct answer:

B. equal protection under the 14th Amendment

Historical background/details:

In the decades after the Civil War, states in the South began to pass laws that sought to keep white and black society separate.  In the 1880s, a number of  state legislatures began to pass laws requiring railroads to provide separate cars for passengers who were black.  At the heart of the case that became Plessy v. Ferguson was an 1890 law passed in Louisiana in 1890 that required railroads to provide "separate railway carriages for the white and colored races.”

In 1892, Homer Plessy, who was 1/8 black, bought a first class train railroad ticket, took a seat in the whites only section, and then informed the conductor that he was part black.  He was removed from the train and jailed.  He argued for his civil rights before Judge John Howard Ferguson and was found guilty.  His case went all the way to the Supreme Court which at that time upheld the idea of "separate but equal" facilities.

Several decades later, the 1896 Plessy v. Ferguson decision was overturned.  Brown v. Board of Education, decided by the US Supreme Court in 1954, extended civil liberties to all Americans in regard to access to education. The "separate but equal" principle of Plessy v. Ferguson had been applied to education as it had been to transportation. In Topeka, Kansas, Oliver Brown filed a lawsuit after the public school district refused to enroll his daughter in the school closest to their home, making her instead take a bus to a blacks-only school.  Other families joined the Brown family lawsuit.  When it went to the level of the Supreme Court, there were other cases from other parts of the country that the Supreme Court combined with it.  The full name of the case at the Supreme Court level was Oliver Brown, et al. v. Board of Education of Topeka, et al.  The arguments were heard before the Supreme Court in 1952 and 1953, and the Brown v. Board of Education decision was issued  in 1954.   The standard of "separate but equal" was challenged and defeated. Segregation was shown to create inequality, and the Supreme Court unanimously ruled segregation to be unconstitutional.

The 14th Amendment was being violated by states whose laws supported the segregation of schools.  Section 1 of the 14th Amendment reads as follows:

  • All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, 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.
