Weird flipside to all this is Alexander Stephens favorably comparing CSA with Paris Commune
I've actually been looking for a good book about the Whigs. A party with Abraham Lincoln *and* Alexander Stephens? Intriguing.
July 1-4, 1863: The Gettysburg and Vicksburg Campaign: April 1863-Saturday July 4, 1863 and Wednesday July 1-Friday July 3, 1863: By the early summer of 1863, the course of the Civil War in the eastern theater was very definitely going in the favor of the rebel Confederacy. Although Lee had lost Stonewall Jackson at Chancellorsville after he died of pneumonia on May 10th, Lee's fighting forces were still as strong as ever and immediately the General, with Stuart and Longstreet alongside, the General decided to make another gamble by striking northward. It was believed that with the Union in disarray, with morale low and Democrats calling for the Lincoln Administration to give up that a Confederate victory in the north and a strike on Washington City would provoke enough desperation that the Federal Government would agree to negotiate peace. Alexander Stephens, Confederate Vice President would begin a trip upriver from Richmond to offer peace terms. By this time, Confederate attempts to get recognition fro ...
June 12,1863- The spearhead of General Lee's army crosses the Blue Ridge and enters the Shenandoah Valley. They are headed to Winchester, fighting along the way at Newtown, Cedarville and Middletown, Virginia. Confederate Vice-President, Alexander Stephens suggests opening diplomacy and conversation with the North, to President Davis. Union General Quincy Adams replaces General David Hunter as commander of the Federal Department of the South. President Lincoln, now aware of the Army of Northern Virginia's move north, visits the War Department. The President receives complaints regarding arbitrary arrests, "Still, I must continue to do so much as may seem to be required by the public safety."* Swashbuckling commander of the CSS Clarence, Lieutenant Charles Read, captures the USS Tacony off Cape Hatteras. He then scuttles the "Clarence" (which had taken 6 trophies), and transfers his crew to the "Tacony," then continues his hunt for Federal shipping in the North Atlantic.

Two vastly different films that were enjoyed immensely in very different ways last week. FIRST: "Lincoln". What a GREAT film, I went and saw it on a Wednesday and then again on the next day. Great writing, Great acting. I suppose I have been watching films for a few years, because the actor playing Alexander Stephens, the Vice President of the Confederacy, was the guy who played "Rohrshack" in "The Watchmen", and Kelly Lynch in the Water Matthau version of "The Bad News Bears". The Kentucky Congressman was Arnold Rothstein from "Boardwalk Empire". Secretary of War was Daniel Simpson Day from "Animal House". The Lobbyist/muckracker Bilbo was James Spader, who has aged well, gained weight gracefully, and for this role, become wonderfully decadent and profane. Every time Lincoln spoke in this film, I wondered how he could get any better. And he always did. Probably what killed him, you get this good in your life, you do not get to live to see 60. Film Two: The Three Stooges. My hat is off to this production. ...

Administration and Cabinet The original Confederate Cabinet. L-R: Judah P. Benjamin, Stephen Mallory, Christopher Memminger, Alexander Stephens, LeRoy Pope Walker, Jefferson Davis, John H. Reagan and Robert Toombs. As provisional president in 1861, Davis formed his first cabinet. Robert Toombs of Georgia was the first Secretary of State, and Christopher Memminger of South Carolina became Secretary of the Treasury. LeRoy Pope Walker of Alabama was made Secretary of War, after being recommended for this post by Clement Clay and William Yancey (both of whom declined to accept cabinet positions themselves). John Reagan of Texas became Postmaster General, and Judah P. Benjamin of Louisiana became Attorney General. Although Stephen Mallory was not put forward by the delegation from his state of Florida, Davis insisted that he was the best man for the job of Secretary of the Navy, and he was eventually confirmed.[64] Since the Confederacy was founded, among other things, on states' rights, one important factor i ...

"LINCOLN"..L-001131R..Daniel Day Lewis stars as President Abraham Lincoln in this scene from director Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" from DreamWorks Pictures and Twentieth Century Fox...Ph: David James, SMPSP..©DreamWorks II Distribution Co., LLC. â All Rights Reserved. (Credit: David James, Smpsp) On a repeat viewing of Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln” over the New Year’s holiday, a scene I had barely noticed the first time jumped out at me. Confederate vice-president Alexander Stephens (played with reptilian gentility by Jackie Earle Haley), in a secret meeting aboard a steamboat with Abraham Lincoln and Secretary of State William Seward, faces up to the reality that the era of slavery has come to an end. Ratification of the 13th Amendment, Stephens muses, will destroy the basis of the Southern economy and the South’s traditional way of life. “We won’t know ourselves anymore,” he says. If only it had been so. What an affluent slaveowner like Stephens feared most, no doubt, was the utopian ...
The Reconstruction failed to bring social and economic equality to the former slaves due to two different forms of racism: political racism, being the decisions that President Andrew Johnson made while in office such as the re-elections of rebel leaders to congress and social racism, this would be the rules, regulations, and organizations set up by the individuals in each state such as the black codes and the Klu Klux Klan attacks. Through an economic stand point you could say that President Andrew Johnson was the direct cause of economic inequality for former slaves. This is evident through his decision in 1865 to re-elect the rebel leaders such as Alexander Stephens the vice president of the Confederacy back to congress. Because of this action alone one could draw that President Johnson did not have the former slave's best interest in mind when he was electing the congressmen. By electing rebel leaders and members of the confederacy who were strongly in favor of white supremacy, did not care about the r ...

"LINCOLN" Trivia - Jared Harris, who plays Grant, is the son of the late Richard Harris (King Arthur, Dumbledore, etc.); Bruce McGill, who plays Stanton, played "D-Day" in Animal House (!?!?), Jakie Earle Haley, a dead ringer for Alexander Stephens, starred in "The Bad News Bears" movies; and there are at least two other actors in the film who've played Lincoln on stage or screen - Hal Holbrook and David Strathairn.
Watched the excellent movie 'Lincoln' last night at the restored Commodore that included dinner. The film stars a great collection of actors: Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Fields, David Strathaim, James Spader, Tommy Lee Jones and some famous character actors such as Bruce McGill as Stanton (D-Day, Animal House) and Jackie Earl Haley as Alexander Stephens (Kelly Leak, Bad News Bears). Great performance by all. The low point was when Lincoln (Day-Lewis) was telling a particularly interesting story that was vintage Lincoln and right at the key point, the waiter poked me with the bill. The balcony will due next time with my own timed popcorn.
FORMER CHILD ACTORS IN "LINCOLN." It was great to see Lukas Haas (the little Amish boy in WITNESS) and Jackie Earle Haley (the smart aleck, motorcycle riding punk in Bad News Bears) on screen in this film. Haas had a very minor part (1st White Soldier) in the opening scene, while Haley's role (Alexander Stephens) was much larger.
He may have been. : ) I also liked Jackie Earle Haley as Alexander Stephens. : )
did a great job in casting. Haley looked exactly like Alexander Stephens, but they casted for Grant with the wrong person.
Just got back from seeing "LINCOLN" fantastic!!! Highly recommend!!! Daniel Day Lewis & Sally Fields did wonderful acting, several of the actors who played Alexander Stephens, Thadus Stevens, Edwin Stanton, and others couple have been their twins. Historical correct.learned that Tad was at a different play performance when his dad was shot. 100% positive that Oscar will grant nominations if not the Oscars themselves. Before we left I returned a phone call to John Hull who is doing well getting ready to run down to Mexico & then Matt Kull called meaalways great to hear his voice!!! So I've had agreat day, now time for turkey chili.
No.Jackie Earle Haley. He plays butthole Alexander Stephens, VP of the confederacy. Levittown is Robert Lincoln
Remember the kid that rode the motorcycle in the original Bad News Bears? He is playing Alexander Stephens in the upcoming Lincoln movie.
Jackie Earle Haley as Alexander Stephens in Lincoln is the most spot on casting since Matthew Broderick as Robert Gould Shaw in Glory
State government this...state government that...You know who else loved state government? Jefferson Davis, Alexander Stephens, Robert E. Lee...The Confederate States of America.
I'm in the midst of reading THE FIERY TRIAL, Abraham Lincoln and American Slavery, by Eric Foner. This is a subject that I'm fairly familiar with. Yet, it never ceases to amaze me how African American constitutionally legal and "justified" SLAVERY came to be abolished via the Civil War, the Emancipation Prolamation ( promulgated 150 years ago this month), and the 13th Amendment to the constitution. It was nothing, if not, a MIRACLE of unintended intentions! If it hadn't been for those stupid racist southern politicians of 1860, it might easily have lasted well into the 20th century ( as did legal segregation). Thank you Jefferson Davis, Alexander Stephens, ect.! Throughout American history one looks in vain for a white sustained MORAL objection to slavery and all of its evils. In some places in America, we are still looking.
Just watched Lincoln trailer again. Jackie Earle Haley is an A+ Alexander Stephens look-a-like (at the 43 sec mark):
This Lincoln movie looks vapid, but man Jackie Earle Haley, seen briefly, is a dead ringer for Alexander Stephens
Can we talk about the perfect casting of Jackie Earle Haley as Alexander Stephens?
I am sort of excited to see Jackie Earle Haley as Alexander Stephens, even if it's just a bit part. Stephens was quite a character.
Things that seem obvious in retrospect: Jackie Earle Haley playing CSA VP Alexander Stephens
"Dixie" was the unofficial anthem of the CSA. When Jefferson Davis and Alexander Stephens rode to their inaugural, a band played "Dixie."
