War Between Republicans

Subject

Republican Party (U.S. : 1854- )

Description

After the war, the Union Party - composed of Republicans and of war Democrats - divided sharply over the amendments to the U.S. Constitution that instituted black citizenship and the black male franchise, and against the legal, political, economic and social equality the amendments represented. The Union Party became divided about race, and Democrats like the editor of the Walla Walla Statesman rejoiced.
