[Forum] Multiple hyphens in compound modifier containing "century"
I can't find a specific example in CMOS that addresses this particular construction. Which is correct? Early-to-mid-nineteenth-century reports indicate that. . . or Early to mid-nineteenth-century reports indicate that. . . I'm inclined toward the first though it seems cumbersome.

[Forum] 19th or Nineteenth Amendment?
For the 19th Amendment, is it correct to use the numbers or should you always spell out Nineteenth?

[Forum] Hyphen

[Forum] RE: "Mid" strictly per Chicago
Shoot. I just took a test with that on there. I hyphenated it. It was mid-nineteenth century. I have never, ever, seen midnineteenth century. Never. I don't like it a bit. Pinky? Is this from the 16th or 17th version? I tried to look it up because the section I looked in said, with th
