Realm Politics: GA lordship election of 1909
The Executor Party would run a ruthless and violent campaign in 1909 to regain control of the Lord-Governor's office. Due to extreme voter suppression and mass hysteria sparked by the Executor Party, the Yeoman Party lost dozens of counties Lord-Governor William I carried in 1889. The murder of hundreds of afrogeorgians occurred as racial violence by Executor militias sought to undermine the suffrage gains granted to them under William I's reign. The election of William Brantley (stylized Lord-Governor William II) would lead to the near universal reversal of civil rights gains made under William I, along with a reversion to near total control of the realm by the Old Elite. A member of the Executor Party would hold the lordship following this election until Lord-Governor Harold's abdication and the subsequent election of Lord-Governor James in 1971.
