    I’m listening to the American History courses again and I caught something I missed the first time. Dr. Gutzman said that the only amendment that Madison proposed that didn’t make it out of the House of Representatives had to do with applying the Bill of Rights to the states. Does anyone know where I can find the exact language of this amendment? Thanks!



    Good question. Here it is. “No state shall violate the equal rights of conscience, or the freedom of the press, or the trial by jury in criminal cases.”

    It was rejected outright by the first congress, many of whom were members of the Philadelphia Convention and the various State ratifying conventions.


    True, it never even got out of the House.
