POLSCI 319 LECTURE FONER; 14 TH AMENDMENT 9/22/09 Cases for next lecture (Thurs 9/24): Cruikshank : why was there no disagreement/punishment against the ruling? Why did federal government win? Ex parte VA : federal prosecution of judge—what were the courts reasons? Civil rights cases (1883): Supreme Court strikes down provision that gives blacks full rights. Why? 1860 : lowest common denominator of Union Coalition: non-extension. Radical abolitionists: French group politically—people despised them, threatened them, murdered them…they were regarded as troublemakers. This was a radical position in 1860. 1863 : massive bloodshed 1865 : new lowest common denominator: formal emancipation. Southern Democratic answer to what freedom means: Black Codes (we can throw you in jail if you don’t have a pass, we can put your kids in servitude, and we can kill you if you steal a grain of rice…) 1866 : Civil Rights Act; Reconstruction: moving towards the Center, but the Center was moving towards the left. Think: Was reconstruction a revolutionary period in American history, in terms of civil rights? Or was this ultimately a conservative period?
