Prior to the existence of the Eighth Amendment, there was little to
protect citizens of the English colonies from excessive bail,
excessive fines, and cruel and unusual punishments. The enduring
freedoms guaranteed by this amendment are extremely important to
all U.S. citizens. Readers will learn about the politicians who
fought for the amendments passage. They will also learn about what
life was like for Americans before the Eighth Amendment was passed,
how the amendments elastic wording has helped it remain relevant
through the years, and how it defends our freedoms today.
