New Constitution of Missouri
Reconstruction (U.S. history, 1865-1877)
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.
