We're going to win because we have King Cotton and highly motivated soldiers
Logically speaking my team outnumbers yours and we also have a more extensive railroad system
As a former slave I never would have thought I would be standing here right now, voting. Thank you
Don't thank me, thank Ulysses S. Grant for creating the 15th amendment
TO FREEDOM !!!
I don't want to stay in the same state as these animals
After the Union got bombarded at Fort Sumter by the Confederates, the Civil War begun. Kobe was extremely excited to fight as an African American. Kobe fought on the Union side. Both sides fought not to end slavery, but to defend slavery. The war ended when the Confederates surrendered in 1865.
After the Civil War life started getting better for African Americans. The 15th amendment was passed which allowed freed slaves just like Kobe to vote. African Americans took an active role in the political process and were held in office
Kobe and millions of other African Americans relocated from the rural South to the North. They were driven from their homes by unsatisfactory economic opportunities and harsh segregationist laws. African American males found jobs in factories whereas for African Women it was quite difficult to find work. Racism and prejudice were nonetheless widespread
