Confederates could not hold public office positions
Had to have a new constitution that included abolishing slavery

Freedmen’s Bureau
an agency that would help former slaves after leaving plantations (slavery) by giving food, clothing, medical help, and an education, transportation and ** Land that had be seized by the union or abandoned to African American Civil Rights Act of 1866 was created to counter the black codes of the southern states. This gave full citizenship to African Americans and the federal government would protect their rights.

14th Amendment was created to back up the civil rights act and put it in the construction so all states had to follow the rule that stated all individuals born in the USA were protected under the constitution LIFE LIBERTY and DUE PROCESS OF LAW. And equal protection under the laws.
