    Howdy Professors!

    Earlier today, I came by a couple of articles discussing the notion of the missing 13th Amendment which was supposed to have said:

    If any citizen of the United States shall accept, claim, receive, or retain any title of nobility or honour, or shall without the consent of Congress, accept and retain any present, pension, office, or emolument of any kind whatever, from any emperor, king, prince, or foreign power, such person shall cease to be a citizen of the United States, and shall be incapable of holding any office of trust or profit under them, or either of them.

    There seems to be a debate if it was properly ratified or not. However, I would be curious to why some felt the need of the amendment since the language is similar to Article I: Section 9: Clause 8.

    Any thoughts?


    It doesn’t make sense to me.
