Historical Note

In the time following the Civil War, the Republicans saw conflict between party members regarding how best to repair the war-torn south. Radical Republicans called for reconstruction policies that would not only punish the South for the war in the first place, but also protect the rights of freed men and ensure party control in politics for years to come. More moderate Republicans sought to "restore" rather than "reconstruct" the South. This broadside depicts the values of the Radical Republicans, urging other party members to not vote for the 9th congressional district candidate because he favors a more moderate policy.

Scope and Content

This broadside supports Congressional Reconstruction, and opposes backsliding Republicans like the Republican candidate for Congress who says he favors "more of restoration and less of reconstruction." This stance "relieves every Republican from the obligation of voting for him on the score of allegiance to the party." General William Terry, the Democrat, was elected in the contest.

Arrangement

This collection is arranged by material type.
