Notes, queries, and musings about Frederick Douglass.
In Charlottesville young white nationalists tossed verbal grenades against blacks and Jews that quickly exploded into injury and death. Sadly, it coincided with the August Lawrence Massacrewhich I discussed in my last post. Then, a band of racist ruffians killed men and boys.
Unlike this month, the officials made a historic mistake by upping the ante on revenge. They may have felt justified in attacking Lawrence.
After all, the two states had been duking it out on their common border for almost a decade in the escalating conflict over slavery. Those who launched the Lawrence Massacre wanted revenge.
And they got it. In the wake of Charlottesville, other cities are hastening to remove their Civil War statues to preclude more violence. If what the nationalists really wanted was their statues and their symbolism, they ended up worse than they started.
Not only that, but Union soldiers burned the very land. They, too, got worse that they gave. Whenever a vote was taken, proslavery Missourians squatted on the land and stormed the ballot boxes.
In response, eastern abolitionists including D. Anthony emigrated to the territory, founding an abolitionist stronghold at Lawrence.
You could say that the ill-conceived Kansas-Nebraska Act began the border wars in Kansas and Missouri, which escalated into a nationwide Civil War. Let us hope that our legislators respond more wisely than Stephen Douglas and Franklin Pierce in laying down decisions with far-reaching effects.
And that those involved in Charlottesville realize that violence begets violence, and that everyone loses. As a nation, we should treat Charlottesville as a warning and do what we must to heal before it escalates into a tragedy on the scale of the Lawrence Massacre and Order No.
