We are the radical republican group. We are working to make their these african americans get their rights We are doing what is right.
when Johnson became president he was very easy on the former confederate states ( the south). He stood back while the former confederates started passing all these black codes which restricted the rights of freedmen.
White League and KKK
This is the White League attacking the freedmen. because they dont want them with the same rights as them.
They would make sure the blacks would not have the same rights as white men. To make sure they wouldnt be treated equal like the white men because the southerns thought these freedmen shouldnt be treated and given the rights.
the Republicans from the North, believed that african americans desered the same rights as whites. They also believed that the confederate states shoudl be punished after the civil war. But most important they fought for african american rights and passed the the bills of rights of 1866, the 13th, 14th, and 15th admendments. The Freedmen Bureau, and the Reconstructio Act of 1867.
Compromise of 1877
We are finally free!!
The White League were white supremaciest groups that were formed and used violence as a way to intimidate African - Americans to not vote. They did anything in their power to make sure that African Americans would be too scared to use their voting rights.
In 1865 Congress created the Freedmen's Bureau to help newly freed slave and poor whites in the south. The Freedmen Bureau would give newly freedmen food and provide teachers for African Americans children.
In the back of me you see a Union soldier giving these african americans rations.
The Compromise of 1877 was called the " currupt bargain" ended reconstruction. It left African Americans to manage their own lives and be free.
This is the Compromise of 1877. This gave the african american finally freedom and they now could manage their own lives. This compromise also ended Reconstruction
