The constitutions created under the 1868 Fourteenth Amendment system, both state and National, setup a system of law based on custom and usage that applies to the false nation created under that system. (The United States were not a “Nation, each State was a Nation, and each are members in a union)
However, those “State” CONstitutions which include the U.S. CONstitution as amended post 1865 are expost facto laws which cannot apply to CSA citizens as the Southern States that legally and lawfully seceded in the years of 1860 and 1861 and then formed the Confederate States of America cannot be bound under any expost facto law established by the occupying government. In short CSA citizens cannot be 14th amendment U.S. citizens. CSA citizens do not grant consent to the occupation, any participation is that of submission to the occupation via the coercion and duress of war and unlawful acts of the occupying government, such is not consent but are acts of submission.
