Title

Splitting

Subject

Republican Party (U.S. : 1854- )

Description

The Editor of the Walla Walla Statesman points out with satisfaction that Republicans who are radically in favor of black social, economic and political equality are now acting in opposition to President Andrew Johnson's more moderate Unionist government. Throughout the war, Democrats who opposed the Lincoln administration policies were loudly called traitors by the Unionists.
In Washington Territory, most settlers - Democrats and Republicans or Unionists - did not favor black equality.

Abstract

This Walla Walla Statesman editorial points out that the Unionists are now in much the same position that Democrats were a year previously.
