Change in the south (1865-1896)
We need more plants so we can expand.
Black codes were passed that limited their freedoms. Radical Republicans believed that Johnson's Reconstruction plan was too easy on the South.The Republican-dominated Congress passed the Civil Rights Act of 1866 and the Fourteenth Amendment that protected and gave additional rights to African Americans.
African Americans played an important role in Reconstruction politics, both as voters and as elected officials.As African Americans increasingly took part in civic life, they faced resistance from Southern whites, some of whom formed the violent secret society Ku Klux Klan.
Meanwhile, Northerners lost patience with Radical Reconstruction policies as well as trust in Republican politicians involved in corruption and scandal.
