Wendell Phillips, in Faneuil Hall, on Louisiana difficulties. Revised and enlarged by himself

[Boston: Wright & Potter, 1875]. 8vo, pp. 16; self-wrappers; covers soiled, corners a little tender, good and sound. The text of this revised edition is largely the same as the first. The Louisiana difficulties referred to were terror attacks on mostly black citizens in an attempt to suppress the vote, as well as attempts at coups at the state level, culumnating in the Battle of Liberty Place, where White Leaguers attacked police and militia, killing 11 people. The violent response to post-war reconstruction in New Orleans led to Grant calling in federal troops. The text is a transcript of Phillips' speech in support of this action, with the occasional interjection from the crowd. Item #58164
