Henry Clay Warmoth and the Politics of Coalition

Henry Clay Warmoth and the Politics of Coalition

Date: August 1966
Creator: Tunnell, Ted
Description: One of the most far reaching failures of Radical reconstruction in the South was the inability of the southern Republican parties to evolve into stable political organizations in the accepted American tradition. The standard interpretation of this problem emphasizes the role of unyielding white opposition in undermining the southern Republican regimes. This thesis approaches the subject from a different angle. Focusing upon Louisiana during the administration of that state's first reconstruction Governor, Henry Clay Warmoth, party factionalism is examined as a source of Republican weakness.
