New Constitution of Missouri

WS 1865-09-01 New Constitution of Missouri p 1, col F.JPG

Title

New Constitution of Missouri

Subject

Reconstruction (U.S. history, 1865-1877)

Description

The Walla Walla Statesman continues to report the unfolding Reconstruction of the United States following the Civil War. Readers were interested in many developments, including this new Missouri constitution, reported to be fraudulently foisted on the people of Missouri. Clearly, the editorial comment assumes a radical Republican, "carpetbagger" influence in that state, and condemns many of the constitutional elements. The O.A.K. referred to is the Order of American Knights; it is interesting to see the Knights of the Golden Circle mentioned.

Abstract

The Walla Walla Statesman reports on the new Constitution of the state of Missouri.
