As Republicans in Congress were allowing Johnson to control Reconstruction, they were becoming angry at the handling of Reconstruction because former Confederate officials were getting elected to the state and national legislatures
White league and KKK
the South was passing black codes restricting the rights of freedmen. Northern Republicans were not going to sit back and allow this to happen.
we must stop the white league
they began over-riding President Johnson’s veto with a 2/3rd vote, and in 1867 they impeached Johnson. In 1866 Radical Republicans in Congress were able to pass the Civil Rights of 1866,
Compromise of 1877
all men are created equal no matter their race
the White League would use any means necessary to ensure African-Americans would be too scared to use their voting rights. Northern Republicans sent the military into the South in 1867 to ensure African-Americans got equal rights; however, the military would remain in the South over the next 10 years.
we are here to kill blacks
The Freedmen's Bureau, formally known as the Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen and Abandoned Lands, was established in 1865 by Congress to help millions of former black slaves and poor whites in the South in the aftermath of the Civil War.
may god be with you all
After 10 years of Reconstruction Northern Republicans agreed to withdraw the military from the South. It was a part of the deal that made up the Compromise of 1877.
