Constitutional Amendment Trivia

Do you know what year Kentucky ratified the Thirteenth, Fourteenth, and Fifteenth Amendments (abolishing slavery, extending equal protection of the laws to all persons, and giving non-whites the right to vote)? 1976.

Mississippi has never ratified the Thirteenth Amendment. Tennessee has never ratified the Fifteenth Amendment.

Do you know what year Mississippi ratified the Nineteenth Amendment (giving women the right to vote)? 1984.

[Eric informs me that Mississippi ratified the Thirteenth Amendment in 1995.]
