1978 -- Introduces bill restoring Jefferson Davis' U.S. citizenship.

1980 -- At a rally for Ronald Reagan in Jackson, Miss., Lott praises Thurmond much as he will 22 years later.

"You know if we had elected this man 30 years ago, we wouldn't be in the mess we are today."

1981 -- Intervenes at the US Supreme Court to defend the tax-exempt status of Bob Jones University in South Carolina, under review because the school openly discriminates against any student "engaged in an interracial marriage or known to advocate interracial marriage or dating."

"Racial discrimination does not always violate public policy."

1983 -- Votes against making the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday a national holiday.

"Look at the cost involved in the Martin Luther King holiday and the fact that we have not done it for a lot of other people that were more deserving."

1984 -- In an interview with Southern Partisan magazine, Lott explains why he opposed expanding the Voting Rights Act.

"They are still trying to exact Reconstruction legislation that is just not fair."

1996 -- Votes no on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which would have prohibited job discrimination based on sexual orientation. He argues:

"Its goal is not fairness for individuals. Its goal is social revolution.... ENDA is part of a larger and more audacious effort to make the public accept behavior that most Americans consider dangerous, unhealthy, or just plain wrong."

1997 -- Chosen by Senate Republicans to be Majority Leader.

1997 -- In an interview with Time, Lott acknowledges that he supported segregation while a student at the University of Mississippi.
