Re: $400,000,000 Slave Compensation- For Masters
BTW, a constitutional amendment is not a "law" per se. It is a part of the constitution. Whether or not an amendment would be applicable ex post facto I don't really know. I don't know if that has been addressed. I suspect it would depend on the particulars of the situation. In the. Case of slavery and the 13th, I suspect it was effectively applied ex post facto across the board.
