less-

The seventh in a series on blunders made by the Supreme Court of the United States. In this article the case of the Slaughterhouse Cases (83 U.S. (Wall. 16) 36, 1873) is reviewed. The blunder made is that one born or naturalized in the United States, under Section 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment, is a citizen of the Union. However, it is shown that the terms "United States" and "Union" are used in different senses in the Constitution of the United States of America. That they do not have the same meanings. Thus, one who is born or naturalized in the United States, under Section 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment, is a citizen of the United States and not a citizen of the Union.
