Re: 150 Years Ago Today....
UhOh!! I'm watching. It's passing strange how little of these seperate, but probably connected events escaped most of our Book of Knowledge editions. Well, maybe not so strange. The era after the war, and all of the ugly things connected to it have been on display so the Southern gentlemen seem as evil as Charles Manson. That never stopped either. It's still going on.
A lot of paper and ink went into reports of the groups that we've been trying to disassociated with for 145 years so it was made to seem their activity was the norm. It really was an effective PR campaign. No mention of the Marshall Law, no right to congregate and such. What a mess.
