Landmark Decision, posthumously - The Fifteenth Amendment, February 3, 1870

The right to vote for Negro educated or veterans was something Lincoln had hoped for; the right to vote for all citizens, including negroes, was the result he had not lived to see.

Section 1  The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.
