Black Code were laws made to restricted the black from using their newly gained rights. The whites created Black Codes because they wanted to stop blacks. The post war life was still the same as the pre-war life for African Americans. The Black Codes basically stripped freedman of their rights.
Radical Reconstruction happened when Radical Republicans were trying to pass the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments. They did eventually pass them and they passed the Civil Rights Bill. All the amendments and bills they were trying to pass would help the African Americans get more rights.
Compromise of 1877
The White League and KKK were against the freedmen having rights. They felt that the were not humans so they should not have human rights. To stop the freemen they would go out at night and murder larger mass of African Americans and anyone who were fighting for them to have rights.
The Freedman's Bureau was where African Americans would go it they needed helped. They would give them all the things they would need to live a good life. They also set up schooling so they could get a proper education. But the Freedmen's Bureau also caused problems because the whites felt they were working more and the freedmen were just being lazy.
The Compromise of 1877 was going to put and end to reconstruction. With the end of reconstruction former slaves would have their rights taken away. With the compromise former slaves were no longer allowed to vote. Also segregation laws were put into effect, it would be 8 decades before they were changed.
