Following Reconstruction, the political domination of Radical Republicans in the South came to a halt with the rise of Jim Crow Democrats, who used violence and intimidation to suppress black voters, who were effectively disenfranchised with the institution of poll taxes. However, a number of counties in the Appalachia areas, among some parts of the South, were solidly Republican since the mid to late 1800s, due to mountainous regions being unsuitable for plantations. Such regions, including Tennessee's 1st and 2nd congressional districts, have consistently been solidly Republican. Elected Republican officials from such have been referred to as the Old Republicans, per The End of Southern Exceptionalism. The term is used to contrast Southern Republicans in the 1950s and 1960s between those who were from traditionally Republican areas and the newer waves.
