In view of his Confederate military service, I guess we can forgive his later collaboration with the occupying military government and its corrupt, Scalawag Republican party which maintained Mr. Bryan in politically-appointed offices until they were finally voted out in Alabama. Mr. Bryan filled the office of Sheriff in Lowndes County, not by legal election, but as an agent of the reconstruction. He replaced my great grandfather, Andrew Martin Black, who had simultaneously served in the Confederate Home Guard and as the legally-elected Lowndes County Sheriff who was removed by the Federals. Just History.
No votes for turncoats. Well said Mr. Duncan Black.
