Yes.  The Civil War was an active rebellion against our legitimately elected government, and the threat was still very real.

They happened because Republicans had the majorities to make them constitutional.  If for some reason they were struck down (at least early on), specific language to override that would have been added to the 14th/15th Amendments.

I'd like to suggest that the readmission of the South was not and could never be constitutional.
