Transcript of Reconstruction
On January 1, 1863, Abraham Lincoln thought slavery was wrong and thought it ruined the United States. So Abraham attended to reconstruct the United States by giving freedom to all slaves in the South.He gave a message according to the "Emancipation Proclamation" that all slaves should be free and that they shouldn't be treated this way. Then the next year, he was reelected President along with Vice P. Andrew Johnson.
In 1877, Rutherford Hayes became President and beat Samuel Tilden in election.
In 1877, he gave a address to rebuild the North and the South to secure civil rights of African Americans
Democrats allowed Rutherford to become President but Republicans betrayed Hayes at defending Civil Rights of African Americans.
The Reconstruction Era came to an end all thanks to P. Rutherford Hayes who removed troops from the South protecting African Americans Civil Rights.
