After the Civil War, owning slaves was made illegal. Reconstruction was set up to help integrate newly freed African-Americans into society so they could learn how to run their own household, find a job and raise a family.

Reconstruction also ensured the wealthy white landowners who had voted to secede from the Union did not have the political power to cause further problems.
