American History

A series of legislative acts passed under the Grant administration in 1870 and 1871 authorized federal
protection for black suffrage through the use of the Army against the Ku Klux Klan. Together, these were
known as the _______ Acts.
A. Force
B. Reconciliation
C. Grant
D. Klan

If I answer A. Force I think it's wrong as research refers to Enforcement Acts. If I answer D.Klan

I think it's right, as the following read gives a bit of insight.

A series of acts passed between 1870 and 1871 to protect the voting rights of blacks and to suppress the Ku Klux Klan. The act of May 31, 1870, outlawed actions intended to deprive blacks of the right to vote. The act of February 28, 1871, an amendment to the first act, was designed to eliminate fraudulent registration practices and to establish a system of federal machinery to supervise state elections. The act of April 20, 1871, known as the Ku Klux Klan Act, attempted to prevent the intimidation of blacks by any illegal action. It also gave the president the right to employ the militia and to suspend the right of habeas corpus when public safety was threatened.

I'm so confused any assistance is greatly appreciated :-)
