This chapter discusses the concerns raised by Lizzie Hardin of Harrodsburg, Kentucky—the failure of constitutional rights to protect slavery, the abrogation of racial order, and sectional tensions. As white Kentuckians argued among themselves about the significance of the Civil War in the coming years, they would find surprisingly quickly that, contrary to Hardin's prediction, the hatred among them was not as bitter or unrelenting as might have been expected. Only a month after writing her dispirited sentiments, Lizzie Hardin gained some vindication from the results of the August statewide elections. Colonel William E. Riley, the provost marshal who had arrested Lizzie and her family three years earlier, ran for a seat on the state Court of Appeals.

Keywords:   Lizzie Hardin, Harrodsburg, Kentucky, constitutional rights, slavery, racial order, sectional tensions, William E. Riley
