hi, i'm Alexis ill be telling you about the Reconstruction.
The black codes were to put restrictions on the black people.
But it was to keep them away from the other people
The Radical Republicans believed that blacks should have the same rights and opportunities as whites.
In 1864, Abraham Lincoln chose Andrew Johnson as a Democrat senator as a vice president. Johnson's plan was too hr harsh toward the south, for example he wanted them to pay taxes in their own properties, if they were farmers or servants they did not have to pay.
White League & KKK
The White League and the KKK were horrific, they made peace among slaves
With the black codes in place, the colored people had many restrictions on the St.Landry Parish. They were not allows into the parish without a permit from their keeper.They were not allowed to have or rent houses. They were not able to do anything which made them feel unequal
The work of the Freedmen Bureau is too was too keep the colored people equal rights.
The main point of the Radical Reconstruction was too give black people, the freedom they wanted,and too be equal to the white people.But the Civil Rights Bill was rejected.
Compromise of 1877
The Compromise of 1877, legacy, was to have votes to see who would be the new president.
The White League is an organization, which is held in New Orleans.it contains 25 hundred too 3 thousand members.Same as the KKK, both will be armed, without connection to the government. This made the freedmen feel unsafe.
The Freedmen Bureau helped the blacks, but the whites didn't like the idea of them being free. they thought it would mean now that the blacks are free the white men will have to do all the farm work.
The Compromise of 1877 was an agreement behind closed doors between party politic operatives. it affected the US after the reconstruction was over because it gave ex-slaves the political rights.
