History of the United States from the Compromise of 1850 to the McKinley-Bryan Campaign of 1896 - Vol. 7

CHAPTER XLI

LET us now return to the subject of Reconstruction. I have already told the story of the escape of four States [ Tennessee, Virginia, North Carolina and Georgia ] from usurpatory rule and the re-establishment of the control of intelligence and property. Mention of misgovernment at the South has from the nature of the case been frequent and some references have been made to particular communities; but, to complete the history of Reconstruction, it is now necessary for me to give some account of the redemption of the other seven late Confederate States.

At the November election of 1872 the Democrats of Texas elected a majority of the legislature and all their candidates for Congress; but the Republican governor, having a four years' term of office, held over. Next year they chose Richard Coke governor, but the Republican incumbent and opposing candidate refused, for a while, on a technically legal point to surrender his office. He could not however maintain his authority without the aid of United States troops; these President Grant declined to furnish and Coke was peaceably installed. Entire home rule was re-established. Texas voted for Greeley in 1872 and ever afterwards for the Democratic candidates for the presidency.1
