Goody ! A man with humor.
 -- Bobble, Ferrisburgh, VT     
    Radical republicans, scallywags, carpetbaggers, Grant sided with, concerning reconstruction of the south. Grant owned slaves Robert E. Lee did not. Grant apposed Johnson's reconstruction plans which were Lincoln's also. Corruption and greed still to this day run deep within the republican party. The fight for State Sovereignty was the issue. The south with a much smaller population, against the north, with higher numbers and industrial might, old ties with European Elites of wealth, merchants needing cotton for garment factories. There were sub-factions of religious backgrounds on both sides at odds. catholics of the north and Baptist of the south. And have been at odds sense leaving England and Europe to settle in the Americas. The wage slave of today, the product of socialism from radicalized republicans from the north, which still dominates the political environment of today. democrat and republican parties basically of no worth to the common person, who is now only a wage slave. Grant disgraced labor, and it is clearly seen by his actions toward the south in reconstruction, so called. By historical fact, it was considered a failure. No one is laughing now !
