As originally counting enslaved blacks as three-fifths of the number of white inhabitants of a state for the purpose of representation in Congress.  (13th Amendment, 1865; 14th Amendment, 
1868; 15th Amendment, 1870)

As originally having Senators chosen by state legislatures, not by a vote of the people.  (17th Amendment, 1913)

As originally prohibiting women to vote.  (19th Amendment, 1920)
