It’s good to reminded periodically how odious the post-Civil War Democratic party was. It’s ironic that they and the Republicans have shifted 180 degrees on each other.

Yep. Amazes me that there are streets named after confederate generals, statues honoring them as heroes - heck even a friggin Mt Rushmore of them. Ridiculous. There should have been a truth and reconciliation commission.

Thanks for this article. This period has been glorified, valorized and whitewashed ad nauseam , mostly by grievance mongers & Southern revanchists. It is long past time these lies are exposed.
