As an anti-reconstruction guerrilla, Democratic activist, South Carolina governor, and U. S. Over the course of his career, Tillman faced down opponents ranging from agrarian radicals to aristocratic conservatives, from woman suffragists to black Republicans. His arguments and accomplishments rested on the premise that only productive and virtuous white men should govern and that federal power could never be trusted.
Ben Tillman and the Reconstruction of White Supremacy The Fred W. Morrison Series in Southern Studies #ad - In the name of white male militance, and solidarity, productivity, he justified lynching and disfranchised most of his state's black voters. This book instead reveals that Tillman's white supremacy was a political program and social argument whose legacies continue to shape American life. His vision and his voice shaped the understandings of millions and helped create the violent, repressive world of the Jim Crow South.
Friend and foe alike--and generations of historians--interpreted Tillman's physical and rhetorical violence in defense of white supremacy as a matter of racial and gender instinct.
Apostles of Disunion: Southern Secession Commissioners and the Causes of the Civil War A Nation Divided: Studies in the Civil War EraUniversity of Virginia Press #ad - The fifteen years since the original publication of Apostles of Disunion have seen an intensification of debates surrounding the Confederate flag and Civil War monuments.

Addressing topics still hotly debated among historians and the public at large more than a century and a half after the Civil War, the book offers a compelling and clearly substantiated argument that slavery and race were at the heart of our great national crisis.

Strom Thurmond's America: A HistoryHill and Wang #ad - The implications of this insight are vast. Crespino's adroit, in fact, lucid portrait reveals that Thurmond was, both a segregationist and a Sunbelt conservative. Do not forget that ‘skill and integrity' are the keys to success. This was the last piece of advice on a list Will Thurmond gave his son Strom in 1923.
University of South Carolina Press. The younger thurmond would keep the words in mind throughout his long and colorful career as one of the South's last race-baiting demagogues and as a national power broker who, along with Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan, was a major figure in modern conservative politics.
But as the historian joseph crespino demonstrates in Strom Thurmond's America, the late South Carolina senator followed only part of his father's counsel. Thurmond was not a curiosity from a bygone era, but rather one of the first conservative Republicans we would recognize as such today. Political skill was the key to Thurmond's many successes; a consummate opportunist, he had less use for integrity.
As early as the 1950s, he began to forge alliances with Christian Right activists, and he eagerly took up the causes of big business, military spending, and anticommunism. A onetime democrat and labor supporter in the senate, he switched parties in 1964 and helped to dismantle New Deal protections for working Americans.
