Next on American History TV, a panel of professors looks at the history behind the 14th Amendment and its grant of birthright citizenship. Topics include what constituted citizenship in the pre-Civil War era, the debate in Congress and in the states over the Citizenship Clause, and the political consequences of that clause through U.S. history. 

This discussion was part of a conference on birthright citizenship hosted by the University of Maryland’s Center for the History of the New America. It’s about two hours. close
