[Goodloe, Daniel R.]:

THE MARSHALSHIP IN NORTH CAROLINA, BEING A REPLY TO CHARGES MADE BY MESSRS. ABBOTT, POOL, HEATON, DEWEESE, DOCKERY, JONES, LASH, AND COBB, SENATORS AND REPRESENTATIVES OF THE STATE.

[Washington?: 1869] Stitched with caption title [as issued]. 12pp, light tanning and wear, Good+. DAB lists this among the abolitionist Goodloe's "most important writings." A North Carolinian, he was President Johnson's appointee as United States Marshal for that State in 1865. Breaking with Johnson, whom he deemed insufficiently wary of a white southern resurgence, he supported Congressional Reconstruction and the radical Republicans. But he didn't like Carpet-baggers either; in 1868 he fought ratification of the 'Carpet-bag' Constitution and ran as an independent for governor against the incumbent Holden, thus creating demands for his removal as Marshal. OCLC notes 22 institutional locations. FIRST EDITION. Sabin 27863. Thornton 4957. Not in Work, Decker, Blockson, Nevins, Bartlett.
