Re: The "Corner-stone Speech" by A. Stephens

"Indeed, the pillaging of the WBTS and the carpetbagging effects of "Reconstruction" prevented an orderly peaceful assimilation of freed black people into American society."

I don't see how you can see it that way...

The South was not of the mind to set free, emancipate,or equalize the black slave population (as a whole) before the war, much less during, and they were not too happy about doing it after. The deeds of the KKK shows that.
