"The convention to frame a new constitution met on the 5th of November, 1867, and it was a remarkable assemblage. Some of its members were Alabamians, intent on the best government that might be possible; others were natives of the State, with not a thought beyond self; many were negroes, for the most part densely ignorant, and many were Northern men who, having failed in life at home, had come South to seek their fortunes in polities, carrying all their worldly possessions in grip-sacks 'carpet-baggers.' In a Democratic newspaper the place of nativity of ninety-seven out of a hundred members of the Convention

purports to have been given; thirty-one of them being from Vermont, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Maine, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Canada, and Scotland."-H. A. Herbert, in Why the Solid South?
