  • Social Studies 8R - Help!!! (my answer was wrong....) -

    I think my answer was wrong because when I googled that question some answers said something about sharecropping or carpetbaggers....

    The question said what "role" did the freedmen play in Reconstruction governments?

    so im assuming they asking for what job or something...

    heres my other answer - During reconstruction, many freedmen and poor whites went to work on the large plantations. These sharecroppers farmed the land, using seed, fertlizer, and tools provided by the planters.

    is my answer is correct (please be honest)

    plus the second part of the question asked "How was this different from the role of African Americans b efore the Civil War?"

  • Social Studies 8R - Help!!!!! -

    Go back and focus on the original question. "What role did the freedmen play in Reconstruction governments.

    Your first answer addresses that. Sharecroppers and plantations are about economics, not government.

    Before the Civil War African Americans were slaves and couldn't vote, much less hold public office.
