“On this day in history, April 21, 1926, Republican Congressman George W. Murray died. He was 73 years old. Congressman Murray, who was born a slave and represented South Carolina’s 1st district, is known for his effort to stop Democrat Congressman Henry Tucker from trying to replace southern elections officials with Klan members. His speech on the floor of the House, on this subject, earned him the nickname “The Black Eagle of Sumpter County.”
