Like I have said over and over again, the existence of the Union is the primary problem that we have to deal with:
“MAY 27, 1963 — The U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear a lawsuit filed by Gov. George Wallace seeking to remove troops from Alabama. In that suit, Wallace asserted the troops would “in effect create a military dictatorship.”
– U.S. Marshals waited in vain for two hours to deliver to Wallace a summons as part of a federal government suit filed to prevent the governor from barring black students from enrolling at The University of Alabama. The marshals eventually handed the document to a maid at the governor’s mansion.
– Mississippi Gov. Ross Barnett told the Associated Press that only “weaklings” now supported integration and a “big majority of the people are still firm in their belief integration is wrong.”
– The U.S. Supreme Court ordered Memphis to desegregate schools and parks.”
