After Grant's election in November 1868, newspapers on both sides began to publish editorials for and against a constitutional amendment granting the vote to citizens regardless of race. This movement led to the passage of the 15th Amendment by Congress in February 1869. This thread is for views on the issue of Black Suffrage published in the period after Grant's election up until the passage of the 15th Amendment. Please feel free to contribute materials.
