His arguments and accomplishments rested at the premise that purely effective and virtuous white males should still govern and that federal energy may well by no means be relied on. Over the process his occupation, Tillman confronted down rivals starting from agrarian radicals to aristocratic conservatives, from girl suffragists to black Republicans.
