President Garfield and the Solid South


Abstract:
This article gives attention to the often overlooked efforts of President Garfield to break up the \"Solid South\" and his attempts to recover his party's political power in the region during the early years of Reconstruction. Attention is given to political trends and strengths in the South during Reconstruction, the political strength of Southern Democrats, as well as both parties' approaches to issues such as controversies over race, the Civil War, and the military occupation of the South.
