presidential reconstruction


Presidential American Elections (1796-1896)

Things to pick up from these charts:

  1. If South Carolina voted for them, vote for the other guy.
  2. Four for you, Massachusetts. Usually.
  3. Never underestimate the ability of the entire country to screw it up from time to time.
  4. Pre-Civil War white southern men were a bunch of whiners.
  5. We’re still feeling the effects of fucking up Reconstruction.
