8. Tragic.

I don't know if there was a realistic alternative but IMO President Ulysses S. Grant and others made a mistake in agreeing to the Compromise of 1877 that removed federal troops from the South.

Some black Republicans felt betrayed as they lost their power in the South that had been propped up by the federal military, and by 1905 most blacks were effectively disenfranchised by the now-democratically elected state legislatures in every Southern state (Southern Democrats).

There are no public monuments to Hitler or Göring in Berlin/Germany. The large numbers of Allied troops that occupied Germany for nearly half a century would never have allowed it.
