56. John Wilkes Booth was a democrat
Which party did John Calhoun belong to? Not the Whigs, they were abolitionist. He was a democrat advocating Secession for years before the Civil War.

What was the party affiliation of Jefferson Davis? Democrat.

The South was known as the "solid south" for Democrats for years because the Democratic Party was the one which, in the south, held onto the Civil War belief of the south being subjugated by the "awful" North. Harry Byrd (Democratic VA senator), Jesse Helms and Strom Thurmond were both Democrats before the Republican Party decided to make itself more friendly towards racists, and the list goes on and on. Learn some US History, Jesus.
