10. J. L. M. Curry, “The South, Her Condition and Needs,” Galaxy (April 1877): 544-53.
Appeal for a more tolerant attitude in the North regarding the South’s needs following Reconstruction. “Three things were settled by the war: 1. Emancipation and citizenship of the negroes. 2. The surrender of any claim of resort to secession in case of dispute as to powers of the Government, or as a remedy for violated compact. 3. The recognition of such a person as a citizen of the United States, independent of citizenship in a State. Besides these, nothing else of a political character was settled, and the second was determined only by the stern arbitrament of war.”
