Transcript of American Civil War, and its impact in U.S

How the Civil War Ended (Reconstruction & Aftermath)
On April 4th, 1865, the South lost the Civil War when Robert E. Lee surrendered to Ulyess E Grant, at Appomattox Court House, Virginia. But, after that, Lincoln planned to do Reconstruction, which was a part of building a nation back to the US. It took a lot of time, from 1865 to 1877, with a presidential election of 1877, with Rutherford B Hayes as the 19th President, which supported the Jim Crow Laws, and that ended up as Segreation in the U.S, which ended up to the 1960's.

The best thing that happened after Civil War was that America became united and the south was under military rule and 4 million slaves became free.

How ending slavery impacted the whole country
In 1865, after the Civil War ended, the African Americans weren't happy after the end of slavery, since they were into poverty, and the illiteracy. When Reconstruction was still there, Andrew Johnson, who was a Republican Vice President, became a Real President, he passed a lot of laws, which included, leaving behind the African Americans voting system. There was a lot of tension. They faced even more difficult time. After Reconstruction, Congress supported the Kansas- Nebraska Act, which supported Jim Crow Laws, which supported Segregation, which separated Colored and the Whites, which took long until the late 20th Century, to end.
How the civil war impacted the country's economy and growth
Fast economic growth- four pieces of legislation that passed helped growth in the country.
Built three transcontinental railroads (Improve transport)
Built agricultural and mechanical colleges (Improve Education)
War was mostly in South that destroyed wealth and all banks in South. The economy also deteriorated
In South, the recovery was slow because there were few opportunities and a few immigrants
Impact on social structure
After the 13th Amendment was passed, slaves became free overnight and became equal to their masters legally that enraged white slave owners.
After first 10 yrs after the Civil War, discrimination reached its peak and african americans started to talk about their rights, until Congress passed laws that limits for African Americans.
Political impact
Democratic party became the party of angry whites of the South and party of the anti-Reconstruction voters.
African Americans voted Republicans Political Party Candidates, until the election of Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Industry and medical advancement

Better hospital organization, ambulances, surgical techniques, anesthesia, doctors
15,000 miles of new telegraph lines
Military advances- guns, land mines, and submarines
South was mainly based on agriculture. Mainly, the North produced more cotton ,woolen textiles , leather goods, pig iron, and weapons
At the end, wars bring destruction of life and country. This was the most traumatic experience for Americans. At least 620,000 soldiers, out of 3 Million soldiers lost their lives in the war. However, ending slavery brought racism and inequality in United States.

It also changed America in may positive ways and also impacted the world in positive way.
I wish we find peaceful ways to bring changes in society.
