Alarming warning engraved on this patriot's tombstone 129 years ago warning us about the Democratic "party of treason" ⋆ Powdered Wig Society: Nathaniel Grigsby was a Union officer during the Civil War, a patriot, and a close friend of President Abraham Lincoln. He was also very much on to the treasonous and evil antics of the Democratic Party, which, after the Civil War, established an enforcement arm to keep former slaves from voting and prospering. You might better know that enforcement arm as the Ku Klux Klan.
The Democratic Party was the party of corruption and evil then, and it remains the party of corruption and evil today. Nate Grigsby tried to warn us 129 years ago. Some things never change.
