Assassination

Subject

Assassination

Description

The staunchly Democratic editor of the Walla Walla Statesman takes the Marysville (CA) Appeal, a staunchly abolitionist and Republican newspaper, to task. In an alarming chain of logic, the Appeal's editor suggests that he hopes the assassination of President Johnson won't be required to bring the same sense of common cause to the Unionists that President Lincoln's assassination did. The Statesman editor, remembering when every Democrat was considered responsible for Lincoln's death, now wonders whether U.S. Army General Irvin McDowell - who criminalized rejoicing over Lincoln's assassination - will imprison the editor of the Appeal.

Abstract

This Walla Walla Statesman editorial takes issue with an editorial in the Marysville (CA) Appeal.
