Drake, [Charles D.]:

RADICALISM VINDICATED. LETTER OF SENATOR DRAKE, OF MISSOURI, TO SENATOR JOHNSON, OF MARYLAND. PUBLISHED BY THE UNION REPUBLICAN CONGRESSIONAL COMMITTEE.

Printed at the Office of the Great Republic, Washington: 1867 12pp, double columns, untrimmed, dbd. Very Good. Drake, leader of Missouri's Radical Republicans, challenges the views of Reverdy Johnson, Border State moderate and one of the great lawyers of the middle period of the 19th century. Johnson's pamphlet, 'The Dangerous Condition of the Country,' had opposed Reconstruction as excessively severe and prolonged. But Drake says that, when the seceded States were defeated "and the power of the nation fully re-established over them, they were without any lawful State governments." The people of those States "had renounced and abjured" the right to re-establish governments on their own; only Congress may properly do so. FIRST EDITION. Sabin 20817n. 148 NUC 0364444 [2]. Not in LCP.
