  • Unfulfilled Promises of The Civil War
  • At the end of the Civil War, many adjustments are promised to keep every citizen in the U.S protected. However, it was not the case. I will explain how those promises were not fufilled.
  • One of those promises were black codes being set. Laws were passed in the Southern states that made slaves "free." However, slaves still had to do required labor work sometimes, and were still discriminated against. This is because white people with power wanted to preserve slavery, and racism was still a continuation...
  • It was difficult for an African American to own land so they would rent from someone by doing work for them. This was called sharecropping. Wealthy white people promised to pay good money for working in cash crops. However, farmers made their own decisions of how and when they would pay them. Many families were struggling.
  • African Americans were also promised equal rights as to everyone. Meaning that they should not have been oppressed by anyone. Although, they were discriminated by the Ku Klux Klan. The "KKK" tormented them to make white people shown as superior.
