Excerpts from The Nation

Very enlightening.

From October 31, 1867.

In an article titled "The Virginia Election" the author deplores that black voters support Radical politicians who stand for confiscation of rebel slavocrats' lands for distribution to their freed slaves.

In an article titled "What shall we do with the Indians?" the authors urge that extermination of them all, all the way to the Pacific, would be prohibitively expensive.

They go on to argue for assimilation, citizenship, and the vote for Indians.

Reading John David Smith.
