Chapter 25. Negro soldiers Fort Pillow retaliation draft Northern Democrats-Governor Seymour's attitude- draft Riots in New York Vallandigham Lincoln on his authority to suspend writ of Habeas corpus Knights of the Golden Cia national significance. In the State of New York the partial political reaction of 1862 had caused the election of Horatio Seymour, a Democrat, as governor. A man of high character and great ability, he, nevertheless, permitted his partizan feelous soldiers already in the field, if they shall not be sustained by recruits as they should be.

The motives of this action were not avowed, but it was taken as a significant warning that the leaders of the Democratic party held themselves ready for any extraordinary measures which the exigencies of the time might provoke or invite.

After having thus absolutely repudiat
ne 5. Judge Taney's written opinion in the habeas corpus case of Merriman, was published in the Washington National Intelligencer of this date.
