Description

This article gives the reader the insight to the federal response to integration. As President Eisenhower pleads for moderation in the segregation “dispute”, he informs the nation that he will not intervene unless a state or local government cannot “maintain order”. Even after being informed of Governor Shivers open defiance of the integration order, he evades the question of action by stating he has no knowledge of what was said or done, but has asked for a full report on the court case involving Mansfield.
