Talk:Additional amendments to the United States Constitution
Why isn't the entirety of the Constitution still in one document? Whose idiot idea was it to split them into three different pages?
- Shouldn't there at least be a "see also" at the bottom of each, referring to the other two? 18.104.22.168 14:24, 9 August 2006 (UTC)
Seriously somebody but these back in one document. This is completley inane.
I'm not aware of why it is separate, but there is probably a good reason. We should try to find who made those decisions. Anyway, I agree that it would be good to have it all on a single page, using either transclusion or WS:LST. John Vandenberg (chat) 01:42, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

These don't seem to link to a source. While this page makes a nice summary of each amendment's effective additions, the original sources of each amendment would be documents like File:11th Amendment Pg1of1 AC.jpg and File:12th Amendment Pg1of1 AC.jpg and would be individually transcribed. djr13 (talk) 10:40, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
Amendment XVIII, Section 2 - Error
The text of Amendment XVIII, Section 2, as reported on this page, is incorrect. For "The Congress and all of the several States shall have concurrent power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.", instead read "The Congress and the several States shall have concurrent power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation." Simply compare the language at senate.gov, and the original document as previously uploaded to wikipedia. A user with power to edit this item should do so.
There are also some small inaccuracies concerning hyphenation of certain words, relative to the original documents available at archives.gov, and uploaded to the relevant Wikipedia pages.
