This chapter discusses how white veterans in the Georgia General Assembly of 1947 played out the politics of race and modernization that they had earlier crafted as the war's most important political legacy. The vision of majority rule and economic progress that they put forth offered little of either to the state's black citizens ot unionists, underscoring the contradictory nature of the politics of change wrought by the war.
