RADICAL MEMBERS OF SOUTH CAROLINA LEGISLATURE An interesting anti-black related CDV, circa 1868, entitled: "RADICAL MEMBERS OF THE SO. CA. LEGISLATURE", designed to inflame passions against the federal government's effort to reconstruct South Carolina's state government. The image depicts 63 members of the state's legislature, all of whom are identified on the verso, with two of the images in the composite reading: "President, Lieut. Gov. Booze 40 acres and a mule" and "Judas Moses who raised the Confederate flag on Fort Sumter". In 1871 the trial against the Ku Klux Klan revealed that many of these men had been terrorized by members of the infamous organization. Near fine.
Estimate $ 350-450
