As president i demand to bring back the Black Codes!!
we are treated very badly, they are using us to control us and to save their economy.
Take away the Black Codes! Give them back their rights!!
After President Lincoln was assassinated Andrew Johnson became president. Johnson wanted the Union to rejoin the states themselves and allowed the Southern states to bring back the Black Codes.
White League & KKK
Black Codes were passed again after President Johnson was moved into office. Black codes were very cruel to African-Americans. They allowed whites to control them as well as punish them. It took away all their rights in which the 13th amendment gave them.
The Radical Reconstruction was the complete opposite of the Presidential Reconstruction. The Radical Reconstruction believed that African Americans should have the rights they deserved. They then passed the Reconstruction Act which didn't allow former confederates to fun for office. And made sure African Americans were treated equally.
Compromise of 1877
The White League and the KKK were both white groups in which terrorized African-Americans. At one point these two groups were fighting but they later came together as a whole.
The Freedmen's Bureau was a place where whites would provide African-Americans all their supplies and much needed resources such as schooling, food, water, etc.
The Compromise of 1877 was an act that white people used violence in order to make African-Americans scared to vote.
