Rare and HISTORIC bound complete year of 1867 Harpers Weekly - A journal of Civilization American Political Magazine. The First Vote, illustration by A. Waud, Harpers Weekly , November 16, 1867. From Library of Virginia: Artist Alfred Rudolph Waud depicted "The First Vote" of African Americans in Virginia in the November 16, 1867, issue of.
Twenty-four African Americans won election to the 18671868 Virginia Constitutional Convention, which created the Underwood Constitution named for John C. Underwood, the federal judge who was president of the convention that granted the vote to African American men but disenfranchised some former Confederates. When it was ratified late in 1869 and went into effect in January 1870, the provisions that disenfranchised former Confederates were deleted, and for the first time all adult Virginia men had the right to vote. That ended Congressional Reconstruction in Virginia. That same year, ratification of the Fifteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States prohibited the states from denying any man the right to vote because of his "race, color, or previous condition of servitude, " meaning having been held in slavery.Also included in the volume is. The Scene on a Mississippi River Steamer, the Parting Song. Another fantastic engraving by A. The desirable Champion Nine Baseball engraving and the Homeward Bound Homer Engraving are also in this volume. I have not gone though each page individually so there are likely many more amazing issues and engravings in the volume. The volume appears complete to me. The fact that these wonderful illustrations are still present is a good indicator that the rest of the book is complete. As you can see the binding is in poor condition. Both Covers detached from spine.
