About this Item

Title
The absolute equality of all men before the law, the only true basis of reconstruction
Summary
A statement of the benefits of immediately granting suffrage to the former slaves of the South at a time of debate over a constitutional amendment to do just that. Dickson argues that suffrage is the crucial right by which southern blacks will advance to good citizenship and ensure themselves equality before the law. Noteworthy is the letter from John Stuart Mill in which Mill agrees with Dickson.
