When 1.8 million young white men fought with 180,000 young black men to free four million African-American slaves in a four year Civil War. Some 320,000 Whites and 40,000 Blacks who fought to end slavery died in that war between 1861 and 1865. Approximately 260,000 Confederates died defending slavery. In his Second Inaugural Address, President Abraham Lincoln declared that this was God's just punishment of American for allowing slavery to continue here past its "appointed time".
When Republican President Ulysses S. Grant used full power of federal government to crush white Democrats who formed the KKK to terrorize and control freed African-Americans in the South from 1869 to 1877. (A new KKK was later created and expanded outside the South in 1915 by Democrats like President Woodrow Wilson and the Hollywood hate movie Birth of a Nation. That new KKK was later crushed by Republicans like Presidents Harding and Coolidge and most Governors, Sheriffs, and Mayors outside the South during the 1920's.)
When roughly two million African-Americans left the South in the "Great Migration" of 1880 to 1940. This was after Democrats regained control and deprived most Blacks of their Constitutional rights there. Most of those who moved to the North and West found liberty and prosperity there. Atlantic City, New Jersey was a perfect example of this.
In her book Growing Up In The Other Atlantic City, local historian Turiya S.A. Raheem described how her grandparents, Alma and Clifton Washington came with nothing and built Wash's Inn, a successful bar and restaurant. They described Atlantic City as "the New Promised Land".
