1866

In 1866, John A. Logan returned to Congress, but as a Republican. This was a very different Logan. It was a Logan who voted for Constitutional amendments to abolish slavery and to grant citizenship and voting rights to African Americans.

Logan served a second term in the U.S. House before moving on to serve three terms in the U.S. Senate. Throughout this time Logan continued to fight for civil rights for America’s former slaves and supported Women’s Suffrage.
