This essay by Helen Dortch Longstreet appeals to "Progressives" not to re-elect Woodrow Wilson as President of the United States. Wilson white supremacist views and segregationalist policies in the federal government offended Helen's sense of "fair play." Woodrow Wilson "not only abided but encouraged the rise of Jim Crow. As President of the United States, Wilson allowed his cabinet officials to establish official segregation in most federal government offices, in some departments for the first time since 1863." Helen calls him a smooth talker . . . an unrealistic dreamer with no real record to speak of after four years in office. Helen says "his words never square with his deeds." Helen Longstreet amply demonstrates her ability as a political critic in this short essay.

About the Author:

Helen D. Longstreet, b. April 20, 1863, grew up on her father's plantation near Carnesville, Georgia. She attended schools in Gainesville and later worked on her father's newspaper. General James Longstreet, of Confederate fame, was her childhood hero. It was when she was working as an assistant state librarian and he was conducting research for his book, From Manassas to Appomattox at the state Archives that their romance blossomed. They were married on September 8, 1897 in the Governor's mansion in Atlanta, Ga. They spent several blissful years together attending Washington functions and traveling around the country. After Longstreet's death in 1904, she spent much of her time rehabilitating her husband's tarnished reputation. Among other things, she was a prolific writer, an avid environmentalist, a conservationalist, and, as an octogenarian, even ran for Governor in Georgia in 1950. She died May 3, 1962 at the ripe old age of 99.
