Blacks pushed back and defeated streetcar segregation one last time before Jim Crow reshaped public transit and the militia in the early twentieth century. The Spanish American Cuban Philippine War forced a reorganization of the nation’s military structure resulting in the incorporation of the state militias into the National Guard and the Guard became a part of the national military system. With these changes, Georgia’s militia’s officer corps increasingly campaigned for the dissolution of the black militia in response to national military reorganization. Rank and file white and black militiamen supported the national reorganization because it would bring new resources and militia recognition. Disfranchisement and militia disbandment combine with Jim Crow in early twentieth century Georgia.
