Reconstruction Era

The Reconstruction Era was the period of time directly following the Civil War, during which the Southern United States faced great changes politically, economically, and socially. While most historians consider Reconstruction to have been a failure, it was an impactful chapter in the history of American civil-rights.
Texas was the last Confederate state to regain Congressional representation after the Civil War, on March 30, 1870. However, Georgia actually rejoined twice, because the Congress did not approve of the operation of the state government. The second resumption of representation came on July 15, 1870,...

Carpetbaggers, often used pejoratively, was the term used forNortherners who came to the South to implement the policies ofReconstruction. They have been frequently accused of takingadvantage of the political, economic and social upheaval in theSouth at that time.
One major problem faced by the US after the US Civil War was thereintegration of southern sympathizers into society. There wasstill many who believed the secession from the United States wasthe right thing to do.
End of slavery, right of all men to vote, and applying the Bill ofRights to state governments (before, it was only to the federalgov.)
The North gave the South funds to rebuild the farms and helpedFreed men to have small plots of land in which to farm.

The Reconstruction era was followed by the Post-Reconstruction era, also known as the Gilded age.
Bootlegging liquor occurred during Prohibition, in the 1920s. Carpetbagging occurred during Reconstruction, as was defined as Northerners who went south to take advantage of the recovery, for themselves and their own interests, economically.
President Andrew Johnson stopped punitive actions against theSouth. He pardoned hundreds of Confederate officers and returnedconfiscated lands back to plantation owners. He gutted the FreedmanBureau of power and funding and abruptly proclaimed reconstructionover in 1865. His actions angered the...

One part of the Reconstuction Amendments was to enshrine"birthright citizenship" as a Constitutional Right. This was verymuch an 18th century concept, from an age when people were far lessmobile, and almost all lived their entire lives within a few milesof their birthplace. This means a woman of...

There was lots of problems the main problems was the mistreatment of the African American population during this period.
Tenant farmers were different from sharecroppers because theyusually had their own tools and animals.
One of the most significant accomplishments of Reconstruction wasthe readmission of the Confederate states back into the Union.Another success was the creation of the Freedmen's Bureau.
Abraham Lincoln did the reconstruction
African Americans, who lost federal protection of their civilrights.
African Americans' rights were limited by black codes
It more or less united the war torn country. Wasn't a complete success, hatred between races and north and south still, but all states united under flag again.
Black Codes existed in many southern states, the main 13 southern states included South Carolina, Oklahoma, Virginia, Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana, Florida, North Carolina, Alabama , Texas, Mississippi, Georgia, & Kentucky. Although black codes were different from state to state they all...
The compromise of 1877 was a necessary attempt to avoid a possiblerenewal of Civil War because if there was another Civil War ourcountry never could have recovered. We would have sunk and neverrisen to our current grandeur. There was never a chance for another Civil War.
These amendments were virtually ignored in the South and did not contribute to the equal status of blacks until the middle of the 20th century.
Northerners who went south after the civil war were called"carpetbaggers" or "scalawags".
The first Confederate state readmitted was Tennessee in 1866, the last was Georgia in 1870, after its 1868 return was blocked because it refused to ratify the 14th Amendment. (The states of Kentucky and Missouri had elected Union governments during the war.) Dates of Readmission Alabama - July...

It started in 1865, right after the civil war ended, and the Union started to rebuild the south and the country as a whole. With the compromise of 1877, and the election of Rutherford b. Hayes, it ended. So it lasted 1865- 1877. :)
Between 1867 and 1877, the so-called Radical Republicans enforcedchanges in the governments of the former Confederate states throughmilitary occupation, enforcement of abolition, and enacting statelaws that tried to give freed slaves more political power.
They had to swear an oath of allegiance to the United States. Ten percent of the states voters had to want back in. Each state had to abolish the institution of slavery.
The sooth was all but destroyed. It was also bankrupt. Hope this helps :) They were the ones to lose the war, and had more destruction and damage caused to them, especially Georgia. They also had to go through "reconstruction" to reenter the United States before they could repair all the damage.
Because the Confederate States was conquered militarily by the US government and occupied by US troops for many years to insure the policies of the Federal government were enforced.
The organization established to help former slaves make the change into a life of freedom was called The Freedman's Bureau.

Democrats had gained enough power to make a change.
Georgia first rejoined the Union on June 25, 1868, along with six other states on the same day. However, the United States rejected Georgia shortly thereafter due to the state's refusal to accept the 15th Amendment. The Amendment gives all male citizens, regardless of color, the right to vote.

The Ku Klux Klan formed in the reconstruction era because the white southerners now felt out of power.
In the sense that it did not adequately protect former slaves fromhaving their rights violated it was a failure.

The Southerners resented both scalawags and carpetbaggers duringthe Reconstruction Era because they were only out to make a fastbuck. Many of them were swindlers and cheats trying to getsomething for nothing.

No, but it was on its last legs, with "Radical" governments hanging on by their fingernails in just three states, SC, Florida and Louisiana.. Upon his inauguration, Hayes withdrew Federal troops form these states, whereupon all three governments promptly disappeared.
