Transcript of Social Effects of the Civil War

Social Effects of the Civil War Families were torn apart Brothers against brothers, fathers against sons, daughters against mothers, people were divided because people were choosing different sides. Even after President Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation, people didn't follow it and still had slaves in Southern states. And If they did not have any more slaves, people still had the mind set that African American people were property and less than human. Discrimination The Ku Klux Klan The Ku Klux Klan also known as the KKK was first started in 1865 by Conferdrate veterans. Even though it started out small, in the Reconstruction Era, it spread thoughout the South. The KKK wanted to restore white supremacy by murdering blacks and even whites who supported them. Segregation Before the civil war there was
slavery. But after the war, it did not get to the point that blacks were considered equals. People who used to support slavery and Southern legislatures passed a law called the black codes. The black codes limited the rights of blacks and seperated them from whites. Racism After all the work people did to make Africa American people free, some people still thougth that they were superior to the blacks. The Civil War took a huge toll on all Americans. Over 600,000 people died! Even though alot of people died, that was definatly not the only thing that happened long term. Even after 146 years you can still see the effect that racism, segregation and discrimination had on people today.
