In 1875, when Republican governors went back to their homes in the North, the eleven Confederate states elected Democrat governors and legislatures. Each state then passed "Jim Crow" laws, virtually stopping any progress that black Americans had made, and forced segregation policies on them for the next 75 years.
This insightful book examines the consequences of Democrat politics, its effects on blacks and Hispanics, and the political and religious leaders of these two groups. The book also explains the composition of minority groups within the Democrat Party, as well as union membership, to point out how majority rule is often overruled by various minority groups sticking together on issues that the majority might not want.
How the South Won the Civil War discusses the failings of journalists and Congress in not dealing with these issues, and concludes with how our education system over the past 60 years has contributed to the problems we face today.
Prof. Frank R. Barreca began this book after reviewing his research done earlier as a naval reservist on summer duty at the Pentagon. After careers in various media and in higher education, he found himself becoming more and more critical of what was happening in the media, politics and education. Now retired, he lives with his wife in Tucson, Arizona.
