There was lots of problems the main problems was the mistreatment of the African American population during this period.
One of the most significant accomplishments of Reconstruction was  the 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.
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.
The compromise of 1877 was a necessary attempt to avoid a possible  renewal of Civil War because if there was another Civil War our  country never could have recovered. We would have sunk and never  risen 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.
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.

Rutherford Hayes oversaw the end of the Reconstruction Era.

Lives of African Americans changed because they were free. However,they often led more dangerous lives because they were still notable to get what the white people had. Most turned to tenantfarming because they had no money. With that said, African Americans gained civil rights that whitepeople had.
The federal actions during the reconstruction era affected  Southerners in the sense that all men were to be considered equal,  and blacks were to be treated as equals before the law.
democrats had gained enough power to make a change
THE southerners were the defeated ones. They were at the mercy of the federal government. The leaders all lost their vote . Blacks and carpetbaggers ruled.
