The white supremacist art in the US Capitol

"Now on the sixth of january we saw terrifying scenes in washington dc as right wing rioters and conspiracy theorists incited by the president. Donald trump and other republican politicians invaded the capitol building one of the emblematic images of that day. Taken by mike tyler for reuters featured one of the reuters walking across the second floor of the capitol holding a confederate flag with chilling irony behind him on. The wall is a portrait of charles. Sumner a nineteenth century massachusetts senator. Who was an abolitionist. But it didn't need the riotous to bring white. Supremacist imagery into the capital. Eight statues of confederate leaders. Still stand in the building. So we're going to begin this episode with a special version of our regular feature work of the week and focus on confederate statues and the capital. Sarah beetham is the chair of liberal arts and assistant professor of history at the pennsylvania academy of the fine arts. she's chosen to focus on a sculpture. that was in the capital until recently but is no longer there. It would valentine's nine hundred ninety nine statue of the confederate general robert e lee which was removed from the capitol's national statuary hall on the twenty first of december twenty twenty. So just over two weeks before the riot sarah the images from the capital last week of confederate imagery inside the capitol were so deeply disturbing but that building actually has white. Supremacist imagery in it already. Doesn't it yes absolutely does You know as i was watching the all of those images going by on my on my phone on my on my computer screen You know i. I was just so upset as an american To be watching and worrying about You know our members of congress their staff in that building Seeing that symbolic space be breach on. I was thinking so much about the officers who put themselves on the line to try to take care of. And and Protect our members of congress. My heart really goes out to all officers who were injured in the two who lost their lives on. But of course i was also thinking about The capital and the spaces as an art historian as a scholar of merck and art on and one of the things that i kept coming back to you over and over again was thinking about the significance of all of the art in that collection You have In the capital you have in the rotunda. You have those enormous paintings of All of these scenes from from american history You have the Rotunda with the Freeze going around. It's that is showing all these different scenes of american history as well But then one of the major parts. That i've been thinking about for a long time as the national statuary hall collection on which is a collection of one hundred statues Two of which come from each state on that Began in eighteen. Sixty four And each state has had the ability over time to donate their own two statues to it. n's There are a couple of different criteria for getting into the statuary hall on the statues has to be either marble or bronze. So kind of the highest level of of preserved stature on the subject must be deceased. Must have been associated with that state on and must be historically noteworthy in some way on and subjects are decided on by the states and then donated to the capitol collection with very little oversight by by the capitol collection on end. What i think that maybe maybe more people know now. But i didn't know until a few years ago. Was that a number of the statues. In the capital. Statuary hall collection are actually confederates Either confederate generals The confederate president. Jefferson davis was there on the confederate vice president alexander stevens on with the one that as i was watching those images over and over and over again the kept coming into my head was the statue of robert e lee Which was donated by the state of virginia in nineteen o nine It was by edward. Valentine who was a well-known converts with a sculptor on and it actually wasn't there to be present for the riots because just been removed in december on december. Twenty first of twenty twenty on. And so you know. A lot of people talk about those images of people going by with confederate flags. But i kept thinking you know. This kind of imagery has been there. has been supporting The the capitol for very long time. We talk a bit about valentine before we go onto the specific scope to that. We're talking about because it seems to me to be really amazing. There is this sculptor who long after the deaths of these people was effectively making statues repeatedly of confederate generals. Can you explain that histories y y walls. Valentine's his creating the statues. Sure so. Valentine was a southerner on his entire family was established in richmond. Virginia on there's a museum there today. The valentine museum that includes collections related. To the whole family he came for a very wealthy family. He wasn't actually a confederate soldier because he was studying overseas to become an artist while the war was over but when he came back He saw real opportunity to get involved in confederate commemoration on and he actually produced a number of major statues That's have been in news in the past couple of months One of them is the g. Sant- of robert e lee Lying dead in state on that is at washington and lee university on in the chapel. That's kind of above where his to miss on. It's very striking sculpture for anybody. Who has even before. I recommend looking

"It's April twelfth eighteen sixty one just before dawn in Charleston Harbor South Carolina on an island in the center of the harbour stands Fort Sumter protected by two shoreline. Ford's Castle Picnic. Enforce Altri Sumter is supposed to be impenetrable but tonight union major Robert Anderson is facing acing the unthinkable. The confederacy has seized the surrounding shoreline forts. And now they're forty-three cannon batteries are aimed inward right at Anderson and his men. Confederate delegation led by Stephen D Lee and James Chessen has arrived by boat to press for Anderson Surrender Major Anderson. I see you received General Elbow Guards offering their for also request. What say you? We've patiently waited your reply. Please return the cigars and Brandy to the general and thank him for the courteous earliest terms proposed and for the high compliment. Pay Me then inform him that regretfully my sense of honor at my obligations to my government prevent my complaints. General Beauregard was Anderson Student at West Point he sent cases of cigars and Brandy a tribute to his former professor. But if major Anderson doesn't abandon the fort this this teacher and former student would become adversaries in combat. Be reasonable surrender. His General Beauregard has assured you he does not wish to needlessly bombard Bard for sumter. Nor do I wish to be bombarded. If you do not batter the fourth the pieces about us we shall be starved out. In a few days Anderson is trying to buy time on March fifth. He sent word to President Lincoln that his men were running low on rations unless they are reinforced or resupplied. Soon siege will be over but beauregard yards orders from Jefferson. Davis are to force the surrender before any ships arrive. General beauregard regressed to inform you that his orders are to accept nothing. Short of your immediate evacuation Russian. Major General knows me as a man among I say respectfully and with all truth that I will need time to prepare for the evacuation major Anderson knows. Does he cannot win this battle. He surrounded by more than thirty five hundred confederate troops even with four sumpter at full strength. It would be a tough fight. But with insufficient munitions as an only eighty five soldiers under his command major Anderson knows that he doesn't stand a chance his only hope is delay. Fleas thanked the general for his patients. Assure him that I will evacuate my men in three days time. No you will order your men to lay down their arms and begin their evacuation. Now I tell you sir I will not give that order then by authority of Brigadier General Beauregard of the confederate states. We must notify you that his batteries will open fire on Fort Sumter. In one hour. Major Anderson is out of time out of options. He fears that by ordering his men to remain at their posts. He's doomed him as he escorts the confederate on void back after their boat he shakes her hand farewell. If we never meet in this world again God grant that we may meet in the next The confederates row into the darkness before they reached the shore they lay down their orders and wait in silence then at four thirty. AM confederate cannon in and fires a ten inch mortar setting off a thirty four hour barrage and igniting the American civil war On March fourth eighteen sixty during his inaugural address Abraham Lincoln had walked a fine line. He could not look weak. So he declared secession unconstitutional unconstitutional addressing. The issue of federal forts in the south such as Fort Sumter he pledged to hold occupy possess the property in places belonging to the government. But at the same time. He could not appear to confrontational hoping to avoid war. Lincoln had promised that there would be no invasion no using force against or among the people people anywhere he instead put the onus of war on confederate President Jefferson Davis Lincoln declared in your hands. My dissatisfied fellow countrymen and not in mine is the momentous issue of civil war. The government will not assail you. You can have no conflict without being yourselves. The aggressors but Lincoln had also to assure Davis he could not tolerate this union. You have no oath registered in heaven to destroy the government while I shall have the most solemn one to preserve protect and and defended. The siege at Fort Sumter was the first test of Lincoln's resolve. Lincoln had a difficult choice. Lose Fort Sumter along with any semblance of federal the authority or protect the Fort and provoke war. Lincoln was conflicted and so is his cabinet. Lincoln had assembled a Motley Group of men with politically disparate voices. The Fort Sumter crisis the first to face. Lincoln's cabinet only highlighted their differences secretary of State William H seward founder of the Republican Party advised abandoning the four to avoid a civil war postmaster General Montgomery Blair and secretary of the Treasury Salmon. P Chase wanted a show of force. They insisted the president order a group of warships to support sumter believing every hour of delays strengthened confederacy. But while Lincoln's cabinet was locked in an endless debate. Major Anderson's men at Fort Sumter were starving president. Lincoln faced another dilemma. A problem that plagued his presidency throughout the war. How to respond onto the confederacy without losing any of the slave holding border states? Lincoln newest situation like four sumter required delicate touch if he pushed too hard. The border states rates might succeed in one of his first axes. President Lincoln displayed his gift of political savvy. He didn't send in the navy and their guns and he didn't abandon the fort sort instead. He found a third more calculated move. He sent ships to resupply the fort confederate. President Jefferson Davis had hoped the union president would order an outright attack. He believed any sign of northern. Aggression would help rally the South and pushed the border states into rebellion instead. Lincoln's decision forced I Davis to initiate an attack. Making the confederacy the provocateur when the confederates fired on Ford Sumter it was an act of war and gave Lincoln the public public support. He needed to reunite the country and fight back with force in response to the attack on Fort Sumter. The northern newspapers rattled their sabers in and the public clamour for war on April fifteenth eighteen sixty one President Lincoln call for seventy five thousand volunteers to repossess the Fort's places and property which had been seized from the Union then on July twenty first. The first major battle of the civil war was fought president. Lincoln's orders to Brigadier General Irvin McDowell. How To march on the new confederate capital of Richmond when confederate troops met them at Manassas Junction Virginia? Many believe the conflict would end swiftly much like Shays rebellion alien and seventeen eighty seven but the first battle at bull run would be anything but quick and decisive. It was an embarrassing defeat for the union who's untrained and unprepared. MM prepared forces were routed. From the field general McDowell was relieved of his command. Lincoln knew he needed someone to mold his army of volunteers into a formidable force so he turned to a man with a reputation for getting the job. Done a man with the nickname young Napoleon Major General George B McClellan McLellan was a west point graduate renowned for his service in the Mexican American war and considered the ideal choice to lead the union forces. He spent the winter of eighteen. Sixty one retraining training. His men for an assault on Richmond. Lincoln didn't know it yet but it would be an assault. The general would never make in fact the only assault McClellan would ever lead would be one against his own president.

"In the decade after the civil war the United States was thrown into the political chaos beyond all the disputes over reconstruction and civil rights. President Ulysses grant ushered in a wave of corruption that that no one had expected the Republicans the Democrats and everyday citizens were ready for a change and in eighteen. Seventy six America's because one hundredth birthday. The timing was serendipitous. The joke was on the American people. The eighteen seventy six Republican national convention began on June fourteenth in Cincinnati Ohio over seven hundred. Fifty delegates relegates poured into exposition hall to select the man who would face off for the presidency. The front runner was the recently appointed senator from Maine. James G Blaine. He gained popularity as a Republican as Speaker of the House since eighteen sixty nine Blaine had weathered the ground lance storm while keeping a firm grip on reconstruction. He solidified his place. As Front runner in January eighteen seventy six a bill was is making. Its way through Congress to give amnesty to the seven hundred and fifty former confederate soldiers still barred from holding public office in a clearly a tactical move blamed gave a speech singling out confederate. President Jefferson Davis as a man who deserved no such sympathy. He blamed blamed Davis for being the architect of Andersonville the most notorious confederate prison camp where union soldiers were starved tortured and murdered ordered. The speech was more grandstanding than anything. And it all but secured his position among the Republican Party as was the norm. None of the nominees including Blaine and the other leading candidate. Indiana senator. Oliver Morton attended the events Bentson Cincinnati Rather. They stayed at home and waited for the inevitable. Telegram that Blaine had secured the nomination but at the convention an unlikely unlikely name began to circulate among the delegates. Ohio Governor Rutherford B Hayes. It was unlikely that he would make much of an impact in an already crowded field. But Hayes name was prominent on the streets of Cincinnati and a small group was rooting for the hometown hero to secure the nomination. A candidate needed to win. Three hundred and seventy nine votes on the first ballot. Blaine received two hundred. Eighty five second-place Oliver Morton received one hundred and twenty four. So they voted again for blames camp. The nomination was his to lose trouble started brewing on the fifth ballot. The Michigan delegates were divided between Blaine and Morton realizing Morton had no real chance. The Chairman of the Michigan delegation decided to change things up. He declared that there was only only one candidate. Who'd proven three times that he could beat a Democrat? Michigan would cast its votes for Ohio Governor. Rutherford B Hayes days. What resulted was chaos? Morton quickly became an afterthought as Hayes rose into second place to ballots. Later Peter Rutherford B Hayes won the nomination by five votes. His running mate would be a man. Hayes had no clue existed former former New York representative William Wheeler Hayes. Nominations seemed to have come more out of Anti Blaine frustration than Pro Hayes. Excitement Blaine had positioned himself well within his party but he still had enemies within the party. Who vowed to stop him from taking the White House? But Rutherford B Hayes was scandal free and had neither friends nor enemies as historian. Henry Adams. PUT IT Hayes was a third rate non entity whose only recommendation is that. He is obnoxious to Channel One. But while Hayes wasn't the flashy choice his nomination wasn't entirely without merit during the civil war he served as a major general general. He saw a battle fighting guerrilla forces in West Virginia and was injured at the Battle of South Mountain in eighteen. Sixty two while still out in combat as was elected to Congress he refused to go to Washington until the war was over once the battles ended in eighteen sixty five hayes represented represented Ohio's second district for two years voting in favor of the reconstruction acts in eighteen sixty seven. He resigned and ran for Governor Governor. He's won the governor's race two terms in a row. He led the charge to ratify the fifteenth amendment.
