    The Civil Rights Act of 1866 was the first federal law to affirm that all U. S. citizens are equally protected under the law ... The Act failed to protect political or socialrights like voting and equal accommodations. Today, the Civil Rights Act of 1866 is cited in Supreme Court cases dealing with discrimination.
