Printed Judd & Detweiler, Washington: 1871 23pp, double columns, dbd. Light fox wear, Good+. Opponents of the Republican Reconstruction program protest federal legislation assuring Negroes and loyal whites the right to vote in the rebel States. The South has thereby been rendered "subjugated and helpless, the mere tools and slaves of Congress." They oppose the "march of Federal power upon the rights and jurisdiction of States." The current legislation represents "the crowning act of centralization and consolidation." FIRST EDITION. Not in Sabin, Eberstadt, Decker, LCP. 5 NUC 0092563 [1].
