How equal were blacks treated in 1815?
It depends on where you were living. While blacks were never treated entirely as equals, some states treated them far better than others, and gave them more opportunities. By most accounts, northern states had eliminated slavery by 1804. Free blacks in the north were thus able to gain access to schooling (Quakers were among the Christian denominations most active in opening schools that blacks could attend); by the early 1820s, there is evidence that some blacks were attending universities. Northern blacks also were able to open small businesses, as carpenters or painters or other kinds of tradesmen. A few became teachers or clergy. In the south, with few exceptions, blacks were still enslaved in 1815, and were thus unable to gain any measure of equality. One southern city with a few free black and mixed-race residents was New Orleans, but for the most part, blacks who lived in the south did so under the condition of servitude.

What were some unresolved questions facing the South after the Civil War?
The South was faced with the overwhelming task of reconstruction. They basically had to rebuild everything that was destroyed during the war. This not only included buildings, towns, farms, etc., it also included their reputations. For quite a while after the war, Confederates were seen as no good and were not allowed to hold government positions. The South also had to face oppression from the North. After the war, all slaves were set free. The South did not like the idea of living amongst free black men and women, so they created Jim Crow Laws and Black Codes that oppressed Blacks. This laws and regulations did everything except take away their right to vote. Seeing that the South would not cooperate with the North's wishes, the Northern government split the South up into five military districts, each looked over by a high ranking military official and other soldiers. However, this plan did not last very long. As soon as the soldiers pulled out of the South, the Confederates returned to their early policy of Black oppression. Why were the south faced with such an overwhelming task of reconstruction? Why was still no right to vote?
