In the 1870â??s, the United State Supreme Court reached decisions that changed the way citizens were treated as well as the way the government was run. Following the end of the Civil War, newly freed slaves and other African-Americans were granted the same rights as all Americans and guaranteed protection under the law. States that had previously enjoyed more autonomy, were denied the power to define the rights of their citizens and new restrictions to the 14th amendment were applied.
