The Reconstruction Period refers to efforts made in the US between 1865 and 1877 to restructure the political, legal and economic systems in the states that had seceded from the union. The civil war had ended slavery but still left one question unanswered. How would the 11 Southern states conduct their internal affairs after readmission to the union? Although some legal protections for newly freed slaves were incorporated into the Constitution by the Thirteenth, Fourteenth, and Fifteenth Amendments, by 1877, conservative Southern whites had reclaimed power and had begun to disenfranchise blacks. Abraham Lincoln took the first steps toward Reconstruction in 1863 when he announced a post-war plan for the Southern states. Under these terms, a state would have to renounce slavery and agree to comply with the Constitution. Lincoln's assassination left the reconstruction uncertain until Andrew Johnson Became president.
Johnson quickly declared that the war goals of national unity and the ending of slavery had been achieved, so that reconstruction was complete.
Congress did not agree with this.
Radical Republicans became incensed when Johnson issued a general pardon for most Confederates and then issued proclamations that permitted the Southern states to rejoin the Union after holding a constitutional convention and agreeing to three conditions. Those conditions are repeal of the secession laws, repudiation of the Confederate debt, and ratification of the Thirteenth Amendment, which ended slavery in the United States. The 14th ammendment was passed which extended due process and equal rights. Over time, this amendment would be used to apply most of the Bill of Rights to the states, but, during the Reconstruction period, it was used as the basis of additional statutes that imposed federal control over the Southern states.
I can copy and paste from a word document. However, this site doesn't accept copies with bullets.
Try removing the bullets and then copying and posting.
