Isaac Woodward Jr., (March 18, 1919 – September 23, 1992) was an African American World War II veteran who was attacked by South Carolina police in 1946, while still in uniform, hours after being honorably discharged from the United States Army. His attack and injuries sparked national outrage and galvanized the civil rights movement in the United States. The attack by South Carolina police left Woodard completely and permanently blind. Due to the state of South Carolina's reluctance to pursue the case, President Harry S. Truman ordered a federal investigation. On September 19, 1946, seven months after the incident, NAACP Executive Secretary Walter Francis White met with President Harry S. Truman in the Oval Office to discuss the Woodard case. Gardner writes that when Truman "heard this story in the context of the state authorities of South Carolina doing nothing for seven months, he exploded." The following day, Truman wrote a letter to Attorney General Tom C. Clark demanding that action be taken to ad ...

I won't be boarding the plane for South Carolina until Tuesday, but I will be leaving home tomorrow. Leaving for Basic Training is actually a three day process. On Sunday, they put me up at a hotel so that they can bring me into MEPS(Military Entrance Processing Station) early on Monday. On Monday I will finalize my contract with the Army, and then back to the hotel. On Tuesday, up early in the morning to go to the airport and from there to Fort Jackson. So while my new life(of being part of the United States Army) won't begin until Tuesday, my old life(of being an unemployed student living with his parents) will end tomorrow.

1828: President Andrew Jackson (Democrat) was the first democratic president elected. He officially ended the Republican nature of American politics, instilled right after the American Revolution ended. He is most hated for his crimes against humanity in that he used the United States Army to brutally murder and evacuate native american settlements. He's also the first president to have killed someone first hand. 1832: South Carolina, a highly Democratic state at the time, was the first state to officially disregard federal law. Andrew Jackson (Democrat) warned South Carolina of the power of the federal government. 1861-1865: South Carolina secedes from the Union, and so do many other southern democratic states. The North (headed by a Republican president and Congress), declared war on the seceding states and fought one of the bloodiest wars America has ever fought. Late Nineteenth Century/Early Twentieth Century: Democrats virtually disband and destroy American industry and business through gove ...

Francis Marion (c. 1732 – February 27, 1795[1]) was a military officer who served in the American Revolutionary War.
