Title

Southern Types-The Wolf and the Lamb in Politics

Subject

African Americans, politics, race relations

Description

Like many white Southerners, white Virginians feared that African American support would lead to Radical Republican domination in state politics. Hostile whites described African American voters as easily manipulated by unscrupulous northerners (called carpetbaggers) and their rapacious local accomplices (called scalawags), but such beliefs were unwarranted, and many former slaves and free blacks achieved remarkable success considering the disadvantages under which they labored and the impediments that they often faced in the decades after emancipation.
