At the state capitol in Concord, the Republican-controlled legislature voted at the end of its four week session to ratify the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution, becoming the second to do so, after Connecticut the week before.  The Amendment formally became part of the U.S. Constitution on July 28, 1868.  (By John Osborne)
