GOVERNOR RUFUS B. BULLOCK - PRINTED CARD SIGNED IN INK 04/08/1869 - HFSID 13740

 
RUFUS BULLOCK
The post-Civil War Georgia Governor signs his name in black ink
Printed card signed in ink: "Rufus B. Bullock/ Governor of/ Georgia" in black ink. April 8, 1869. 5x2¾ card. Rufus Bullock (1834-1907) was an American politician, best known for his post-bellum tenure as Governor of Georgia during Reconstruction. Born and raised in New York, Bullock moved to Augusta, Georgia in 1857 for his job with the telegraph company Adams Express. He was elected to Governor in 1868, famously noted in Margaret Mitchell's Gone With the Wind which notes that a Republican won the election after utilizing voter fraud with the help of a freed slave constituency. After three years of various allegations of scandal, during which Bullock traveled multiple times to Washington, D.C. to plead with President Grant to support the military reconstruction in George and enforce the provisions of the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments, he was obliged by the Klu Klux Klan to resign the governorship and was succeeded by the Republican State Senate president Benjamin Conley, after whom no Republican would serve as Governor of Georgia until 2003. Toned. Slightly stained throughout. Corners rounded. Otherwise, fine condition.
