"Negro Militias" were formed during the post-U.S. Civil War Reconstruction in the South. These state militias protected both the Black population and the Republican state governments. Reconstruction was the original template for U.S. nation-building and the insurgents were the KKK and the White League. This talk will examine the role of the African-American militias as the armed wing of Republican state governments in the Reconstruction process and why the militias were abandoned and defeated when the North withdrew from Reconstruction.
Presenter: Al Sargis, Coordinator, Friedrich Engels Institute of Marxist War and Military Analysis
