United States v. Cruikshank...
Item # 679285
March 28, 1876
THE NEW YORK TIMES, March 28, 1876
* Supreme Court decision giving cover to the KKK
* Bill of Rights did not apply to State Governments (?)
Page 2 has a almost 2.5 column article: "COLORED VOTERS IN LOUISIANA", which tells of the SCOTUS' decision in the United States v. Cruikshank case. This "case represented a major blow to federal efforts to protect the civil rights of African Americans." (Wiki)
Eight pages browned with edge tears, loose at the spine, edge chipping, and very fragile. Must be handled with extreme care.
