Tucker, John Randolph:

THE OLD AND THE NEW SOUTH: BACCALAUREATE ADDRESS BEFORE THE SOUTH CAROLINA COLLEGE. COMMENCEMENT, 1887.

Columbia, S.C.: 1887 27pp, dbd, light soil. Good+. Tucker was a State-Rights Democrat, lawyer, and law professor who, after the Civil War, "appeared before the federal Supreme Court oftener, with one exception, than any other Virginian during this period" [DAB]. He represented the Chicago anarchists there. He became President of the American Bar Association and wrote "the ablest treatise on the Constitution from the standpoint of the strict constructionist school." Marke 404. Here he discusses the South before and after the War. Before, slavery rendered southerners "like the man with the wolf by the ears-- it was inconvenient to hold on, but what dangers would result to let go?" He insists that the South's principal idea, to save the States from "interference with local rights by the Federal Government," was right. The South, while eschewing any desire to fight the old battles, must continue to stand for limited government. FIRST EDITION. Haynes 18716. 603 NUC 0372454 [7].
