Title: Letter from James W. Crouch, Jr. regarding civil rights bill
Description: Some opposed the civil rights bill because they felt it was anti-democratic, forcing the ideas and desires of the few upon the lives of the majority. The letter includes passages on how the legislation is a violation of the rights dating back to American independence from England along with a growing distrust in the federal government’s ability to protect the rights for the majority.
