Title

This Week in Reconstruction, July 1-7, 1869

Description

Governor Stoneman from California writes to confirm the charges that Wells tried to sell the public railroad stocks held by the State for personal wealth. This illicit activity only further proves Wells' dishonesty. He tricked the freedmen into believing that he will provide them with greater opportunities. In reality, he is in office for personal gains, like wealth and power. He falls into the "carpetbaggers" stereotype. It is essential to vote for Walker this week to remove this dishonesty from office.
