Remembering Pinckney Pinchback


You don't see this name come up very often, so it was nice to see Pinckney Pinchback recalled in This Day in History.  One can only imagine the unrest that swirled around Louisiana in 1872. He didn't hold office for very long, one month.  Nice to see that Pinchback stood up for Charles Sumner when a motion was made to condemn all Republicans who voted against U.S. Grant.

  1. He sure looks quite distinguished in that portrayal.
