In the spring of 1865, the Confederacy was facing long odds against the Union armies. The Confederate Congress, in March, approved enlisting blacks, but did not give freedom to any who served.
On April 9, 1865, General Robert E. Lee surrendered to General Ulysses S. Grant, which triggered more surrenders across the south, signaling the end of the US Civil War. Confederate officers and enlisted men were allowed to return home "to help put crops in the field and carry their families through the next winter."
An economic depression also affected the south in 1865. Along with paying for the war, there was also the cost of repairing the destruction of buildings, agriculture and industry. Slaves had been freed, which was a financial loss for slave owners, who now had to begin paying their former slaves. The world price of cotton had fallen. Land owners began offering share cropping and tenant farming to poor farmers and freedmen as a way for the sharecroppers and tenant farmers to provide for their families and for the land owner to continue to have workers to produce crops.
