When you think about racial equality and civil rights, which political party comes to mind? The Republicans? Or, the Democrats?

Most people would probably say the Democrats. But this answer is incorrect.

Since its founding in 1829, the Democratic Party has fought against every major civil rights initiative, and has a long history of discrimination.

The Democratic Party defended slavery, started the Civil War, opposed Reconstruction, founded the Ku Klux Klan, imposed segregation, perpetrated lynchings, and fought against the civil rights acts of the 1950s and 1960s.

In contrast, the Republican Party was founded in 1854 as an anti-slavery party. Its mission was to stop the spread of slavery into the new western territories with the aim of abolishing it entirely. This effort, however, was dealt a major blow by the Supreme Court. In the 1857 case Dred Scott v. Sandford, the court ruled that slaves aren’t citizens; they’re property. The seven justices who voted in favor of slavery? All Democrats. The two justices who dissented? Both Republicans.

The slavery question was, of course, ultimately resolved by a bloody civil war. The commander-in-chief during that war was the first Republican President, Abraham Lincoln – the man who freed the slaves.

Six days after the Confederate army surrendered, John Wilkes Booth, a Democrat, assassinated President Lincoln. Lincoln’s vice president, a Democrat named Andrew Johnson, assumed the presidency. But Johnson adamantly opposed Lincoln’s plan to integrate the newly freed slaves into the South’s economic and social order.

Johnson and the Democratic Party were unified in their opposition to the 13th Amendment, which abolished slavery; the 14th Amendment, which gave blacks citizenship; and the 15th Amendment, which gave blacks the vote. All three passed only because of universal Republican support.

During the era of Reconstruction, federal troops stationed in the south helped secure rights for the newly freed slaves. Hundreds of black men were elected to southern state legislatures as Republicans, and 22 black Republicans served in the US Congress by 1900. The Democrats did not elect a black man to Congress until 1935.

But after Reconstruction ended, when the federal troops went home, Democrats roared back into power in the South. They quickly reestablished white supremacy across the region with measures like black codes – laws that restricted the ability of blacks to own property and run businesses. And they imposed poll taxes and literacy tests, used to subvert the black citizen’s right to vote.

And how was all of this enforced? By terror -- much of it instigated by the Ku Klux Klan, founded by a Democrat, Nathan Bedford Forrest.

As historian Eric Foner - himself a Democrat - notes:

“In effect, the Klan was a military force serving the interests of the Democratic Party.”

2. 20th March 1854: U.S. Republican Party founded at a meeting in a schoolhouse in Wisconsin

The Missouri Compromise had been in place since 1820, when Missouri was admitted to the Union as a slave state in exchange for the prohibition of slavery north of the 36°30′ parallel. However, on 4 March 1854 the Senate passed the Kansas-Nebraska Act to create two new territories with the potential for them to be opened to slavery, effectively repealing the Missouri Compromise. In response, a coalition of opponents to the expansion of slavery began to discuss forming a new political party on an anti-slavery platform.

New York attorney Alvan E. Bovay had moved to the small town of Ripon, Wisconsin, in 1850. He quickly became a respected member of the community, and was instrumental in the construction of the single-story wooden framed schoolhouse. On the evening of 20 March 1854 he organized a meeting there for fellow opponents of the Kansas-Nebraska Act, at which the town committees of the Free Soil and Whig parties voted to dissolve themselves in favor of creating a new party. It is generally accepted that Bovay himself proposed naming the new party ‘Republican’ in homage to the Republican Party of Thomas Jefferson.

The party’s first convention was held on 6 July 1854 on the outskirts of Jackson, Michigan, barely six weeks after President Franklin Pierce signed the Kansas-Nebraska Act into law. By this time Bovay had persuaded Horace Greeley, the editor of the New York Tribune, to promote the ‘Republican’ party. The party quickly built support and by 1856 it proved to be the dominant political force in the North when John C. Fremont, the first Republican presidential candidate, won 11 of the 16 Northern states.

3. On this day: The Founding of the Republican Party

This historical account describes the founding of the Republican Party in Ripon, Wisconsin, by former members of the Whig Party who opposed the spread of slavery into western territories. The Whig Party had failed to address the national crisis over slavery and disintegrated after the introduction of the Kansas-Nebraska Bill of 1854. The anti-slavery Whigs began meeting in the upper midwestern states, culminating in the founding meeting of the Republican Party in Wisconsin on March 20, 1854. The Republicans rapidly gained support in the North, and their first presidential candidate, John C. Fremont, won 11 of the 16 Northern states in 1856. By 1860, the Southern slave states were threatening secession if the Republicans won the presidency, which happened when Abraham Lincoln was elected. This led to the start of the Civil War in April 1861. The Republican Party became the party of the victorious North, and they passed a "Radical Reconstruction" policy on the South after the war, which led to the passage of the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments to the Constitution and the granting of equal rights to all Southern citizens. Although the Republican Party lost control of the South by 1876, they continued to dominate the presidency until the election of Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1933.

With the massive wave of Irish and German immigrants arriving in America, new cultures were being brought to bear on American manufacturing cities. In response, a nativist movement to oppose these folks rose up, most notably the Know Nothing Party.

Additionally, there were regional differences and conflict with respect to slavery. In the North, abolitionism was not the dominant position, but it certainly was influential through such publications at the Liberator and Uncle Tom's Cabin. The majority of northerners opposed slavery not on moral grounds but on economic grounds, a position which gave rise to the Free Soil Movement.

But the conflict over slavery continued to push north and south apart, most acutely after John Brown's Raid on Harpers Ferry.

If you have any questions, leave them below and Heimler shall answer forthwithly.

Today’s Republican Party opposes big government. It’s culturally conservative. Its demographic support is strongest among white voters, and it usually dominates elections in the South. And its 2016 presidential nominee has been heavily criticized for inciting racial tensions.

But things weren’t always this way.

Over the past 160 or so years, the party has undergone a remarkable transformation from the party of Abraham Lincoln… to the party of Donald Trump.

11. Was the Civil War About Slavery

What caused the Civil War? Did the North care about abolishing slavery? Did the South secede because of slavery? Or was it about something else entirely...perhaps states' rights? Colonel Ty Seidule, Professor of History at the United States Military Academy at West Point, settles the debate.

Was the American Civil War fought because of slavery? More than 150 years later this remains a controversial question.

Why? Because many people don't want to believe that the citizens of the southern states were willing to fight and die to preserve a morally repugnant institution. There has to be another reason, we are told. Well, there isn't.

The evidence is clear and overwhelming. Slavery was, by a wide margin, the single most important cause of the Civil War -- for both sides. Before the presidential election of 1860, a South Carolina newspaper warned that the issue before the country was, "the extinction of slavery," and called on all who were not prepared to, "surrender the institution," to act. Shortly after Abraham Lincoln's victory, they did.

The secession documents of every Southern state made clear, crystal clear, that they were leaving the Union in order to protect their "peculiar institution" of slavery -- a phrase that at the time meant "the thing special to them." The vote to secede was 169 to 0 in South Carolina, 166 to 7 in Texas, 84 to 15 in Mississippi. In no Southern state was the vote close.

Alexander Stephens of Georgia, the Confederacy's Vice President clearly articulated the views of the South in March 1861. "Our new government," he said, was founded on slavery. "Its foundations are laid, its cornerstone rests upon the great truth that the Negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery, submission to the superior race, is his natural and normal condition." Yet, despite the evidence, many continue to argue that other factors superseded slavery as the cause of the Civil War.

Some argue that the South only wanted to protect states' rights. But this raises an obvious question: the states' rights to what? Wasn't it to maintain and spread slavery? Moreover, states' rights was not an exclusive Southern issue. All the states -- North and South -- sought to protect their rights -- sometimes they petitioned the federal government, sometimes they quarreled with each other. In fact, Mississippians complained that New York had too strong a concept of states' rights because it would not allow Delta planters to bring their slaves to Manhattan. The South was preoccupied with states' rights because it was preoccupied first and foremost with retaining slavery.

Some argue that the cause of the war was economic. The North was industrial and the South agrarian, and so, the two lived in such economically different societies that they could no longer stay together. Not true.

In the middle of the 19th century, both North and South were agrarian societies. In fact, the North produced far more food crops than did the South. But Northern farmers had to pay their farmhands who were free to come and go as they pleased, while Southern plantation owners exploited slaves over whom they had total control.

And it wasn't just plantation owners who supported slavery. The slave society was embraced by all classes in the South. The rich had multiple motivations for wanting to maintain slavery, but so did the poor, non-slave holding whites. The "peculiar institution" ensured that they did not fall to the bottom rung of the social ladder. That's why another argument -- that the Civil War couldn't have been about slavery because so few people owned slaves -- has little merit.

12. Ep. 21. Pro Slavery Democrat Activism

Evidenced in previous episodes, the Democratic Party pursued slave-expansionism to the detriment and risk to the Union. Numerous small instances also occurred, including the violent assault of an anti-slavery statesmen in the Senate chambers, the burning of Federal postage, and the adoption of House rules to prohibit anti-slavery petitions.
