The Corwin Amendment in it's text prohibited another amendment from overturning it. An unamendable amendment is as ironclad as one can get. Agreed?What "ironclad amendment"???
The operative section of the Corwin Amendment states:
"No amendment shall be made to the Constitution which will authorize or give to Congress the power to abolish or interfere, within any State, with the domestic institutions thereof, including that of persons held to labor or service by the laws of said State.”
what will really blow your mind? the amendment was passed thru both houses of congress and is still active and will never go away. What would happen if 3/4 states in the future decide to ratify it? would it override the 13th? It's the only amendment i have ever heard of that if passed would be unamendable.
