It is not only blacks that are being treated unfairly. It's also true for Native Americans. Out west, in 1876, though the Sioux Indians are victorious at the battle of the Little Bighorn , it will turn out to be their last big win. For Native Americans the real battle is almost over. They have lost control of most of their land.
But there is an even larger group that is being unfairly treated in 1876. It is a group that includes fully half of all Americans, none of whom have the right to vote. Now, who might that be?
