John Bingham’s Last Word on the Fourteenth Amendment?

That's the title of a recent post by Gerard Magliocca.  Magliocca is currently working on a biography of John Bingham--the author of Section One of the Fourteenth Amendment.  His research recently took him to Cadiz Ohio where he discovered what may be Bingham's last recorded comments on the Amendment.

Maddeningly ambiguous, of course, as are most things relating to the original meaning of the Fourteenth Amendment.  Still, more historical information can only help.
