The Redeemers

Adding to the last posting (The Most Contentious Election in US History) I ran cross the history of the Redeemers.  A good read on how the south ended up with Jim Crow even after the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments.  It also uses the term “Corrupt Bargain” for the deal that ended the election of 1876.  Things I never learned in school.  Of course, I went to school in the Deep South.
