A 125-Year-Old Grave Has A Chilling Message Etched Into It Regarding The Democratic Party

on

An overwhelming sense that the Democratic party is corrupt and self absorbed has been apparent throughout the countries existence.

Democracy is based on the idea that having two separate parties that formed through difference of opinion can come together and compromise to some form of a medium.

Unfortunately, the Democratic Party seems to have forgotten the core principal surrounding America’s Democracy.

Recent liberal actions in the wake of Republican President Trump’s election have been horrific and do not display what the country was founded on.

The Democratic Party has displayed nothing but petulant behavior after their candidate lost fair and square.

One man was wise beyond his years and knew that the problems he witnessed would continue and decided to leave a grave message in the most ironic way imaginable.

Nathaniel Grigsby was born on October 11, 1811. He was a Civil War veteran, a 2nd Lieut., of Company G, 10th Indiana Cavalry. He was a farmer.

He was also a friend of Abraham Lincoln.

In 1860, he was living in Norborne. He wrote to Lincoln and received an appointment as Republican Precinct Committee Man. He placed Lincoln’s name on the 1860 ballot. All of Natty’s neighbors were Southern sympathizers. He had been talking about electing Lincoln for president in town. One morning at about 2 or 3 a.m. a neighbor rode up and told Natty not to light any lights. The neighbor wanted to warn him that his neighbors were planning to murder him and if he wanted to live he should be on his way.

After the warning, Natty moved back to Spencer Co., IN where he and four of his five sons enlisted in Company C 10th IN Cavalry (Richmond Davis did not enlist). Natty was named 2nd Lieutenant. ~Authentic Campaigner

In 1890, Mr. Grigsby passed away in Kansas. However, he left a brilliant warning to future generations inscribed on his tombstone.

Via Daily KOS:

My husband’s 6th great-grandfather, John Grigsby, sailed to Virginia in 1662, earning the Captain of the ship in which he sailed, 50 acres of Virginia land. The Grigsby family became prosperous land owners and remained in Virginia for generations.

A member of one of the families that remained in Indiana was Aaron Grigsby, whose claim to fame was his marriage to Sarah Lincoln, sister to the future President. They wed in 1826, but sadly within 18 months, Sarah died in childbirth. Abraham felt that Aaron failed to get a doctor in time and blamed him for Sarah’s death.

Nathaniel Grigsby was Aaron Grigsby’s brother, a good friend of Abraham Lincoln who attended school with him. By 1860, Nathaniel had moved to Missouri where he wrote to Lincoln requesting to be named: Republican Precinct Committee Man.

      The Democrats during the Civil War were Southerners and slave holders. The North were Republicans. How time has changed us as the South is not Republican and the Northern big cities are Democrat. If you love Democracy and the Constitution you should believe both parties have a roll otherwise we have a Dictatorship. I like both parties and disagree with both at times. But I will never bash one over the other. I’ve found there are Liberals and Conservatives in both parties, and we should respect the right to speak and have different opinions on issues. You can’t do that in Russia, China, or Cuba!! (Nor in the Muslim states). When we all have to think alike WE ARE IN TROUBLE. Save the right to disagree and still be friends.

    Democrats have not been this CRAZY insanely MAD since the republicans took away their slaves.

    The 13th Amendment to abolish slavery was voted for by 100% of the Republicans in congress and by 23% of the Democrats in congress.

    Not one Democrat either in the House or the Senate voted for the 14th amendment declaring that former slaves were full citizens of the state in which they lived and were therefore entitled to all the rights and privileges of any other citizen in that state.

    Not a single one of the 56 Democrats in Congress voted for the 15th amendment that granted explicit voting rights to black Americans.

    In 1866 Democrats formed the Ku Klux Klan to pave the way for Democrats to regain control in the elections.
    George Wallace was a Democrat.
    Bull Connor was a Democrat.
    In the 19th century, Democrats prevented Black Americans from going to public school.
    In the 20th and 21st century Democrats prevented Black Americans trapped in failing schools from choosing a better school. In fact Democrats voted against the bill by 99%.

    In the 20th and 21st century Democrats prevented Black Americans trapped in failing schools from choosing a better school. In fact Democrats voted against the bill by 99%.

    Between 1882 and 1964, 4,743 individuals were lynched. 3,446 blacks and 1,297 whites. Republicans often led the efforts to pass federal anti-lynching laws and Democrats successfully blocked those bills.

    Though both the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 were signed into law under Democrat President, Lyndon Johnson, it was the Republicans in Congress who made it possible in both cases – not to overlook the fact that the heart of both bills came from the work of Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

    Following the Civil War, a black man named Frederick Douglass received Presidential appointments from Republican Presidents Ulysses Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, and James A. Garfield. Democratic President Grover Cleveland removed Frederick Douglas from office but Republican President Benjamin Harrison reappointed him.

    In 1850, Democrats in Congress passed the “Fugitive Slave Law”. That law required Northerners to return escaped slaves back into slavery or else pay huge fines.
    Because the “Fugitive Slave Law” allowed Free Blacks to be carried into slavery, this law was disastrous for blacks in the North; and as a consequence of the atrocious provisions of this Democratic law, some 20,000 blacks in the North left the United States and fled to Canada.

    Following the passage of these pro-slavery laws in Congress, in May of 1854, a number of the anti-slavery Democrats in Congress – along with some anti-slavery members from other political parties, including the Whigs, Free Soilers, and Emancipationists, formed a new political party to fight slavery and secure equal civil rights for black Americans. The name of that party? They called it the Republican Party because they wanted to return to the principles of freedom and equality first set forth in the governing documents of the Republic before pro-slavery members of Congress had perverted those original principles.
    One of the founders of the Republican was U.S. Senator Charles Sumner. In 1856, Sumner gave a two day long speech in the U.S. Senate against slavery. Following that speech, Democratic Representative Preston Brooks from South Carolina came from the House, across the Rotunda of the Capitol, and over to the Senate where he literally clubbed down Sumner on the floor of the Senate, knocked him unconscious, and beat him almost to death. According to the sources of that day, many Democrats thought that Sumner’s clubbing was deserved, and it even amused them.

    In 1856, the Republican Party entered its first Presidential election, running Republican John C. Fremont against Democrat James Buchanan. In that election, the Republican Party issued its first-ever Party platform. It was a short document with only nine planks in the platform, but significantly, six of the nine planks set forth bold declarations of equality and civil rights for African Americans based on the principles of the Declaration of Independence.
