Grant and Colfax Elected by Negro Votes

Subject

Elections

Description

"...it is now ascertained beyond a doubt that the Jacobin candidates were elevated to office against the wishes of a decided majority of the white voters of the country."

Abstract

Grant and Colfax were elected because white men were disenfranchised in Virginia, Mississippi, and Texas, and others were denied suffrage "by congressional and legislative proscription." Deducting the "nigger vote" of the North, "we still find the black republican usurpers in a popular minority of between three and four hundred thousand."
