Andrew Jenkins Reconstruction Black Codes The law gave african americans
citizenship and forbade the states from passing discriminatory laws Black Codes kept AfricanAmericans in a condition similar to slavery Several of the codes established specific hours of work
And required them to get a licences for non agrcultural work Andrew Johnson Johnson became President
in 1865 and was impeached
in 1869. Johnson tried to break planters power by excluding high-ranking confederats and wealthy Southern landowners, from taking the oath need for voting privileges. 7 confedrates staes agreed to his terms and over the next few monthes all of them set up a new state government Johnson pardoned more than 13,000 former confederates because he beileved " white men alone should must manage The South ." Lincon's plan:He wanted to reconcile the south with the union, so instead off punishment he offered a general amnsty to all southners who took an oath of loyalty to the U.S Restiance to his plan surfaced immediatly with a group of republicans known as radical republicans. They wanted to stop ex- confederates from returing to power. An alternate version to Lincon's plan was made called the Wade-Davis Bill of 1864 required the majority of the adult white men that where in former confederate states to take an oath of allegence to the uinon. Lincon blocked it with a pocket veto. KKK- (Ku Klux Klan)-Unable to respond openly at the rupublicans running the southern states, some organized secert societies to undermine the rebublican rule, the largest of which was the Ku Klux Klan. The KKK terrorized African Americams and anyone who supported the republican government. Society: During reconstruction voters elected new republican-dominated governments, The republican gov. began public work problams to help. Why The south was devistaed , the value of crops dropped
and 100,000 of men died in war Grant served as a commander in cheif of the Union army during the civil war , He later won the presidential electiopn by a small margin of 300,000 votes. 9 out of 10 African Americans voted for Grant. Soon after his election The radicals introduced the 15th amendment which says "The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude." Tenant farming- is one who resideds on and frams on land owned by a land lord. It's also an agricultural production system where landoweners contribute thier land, and tenant farming has been importandt to the U.S since the 1870's Share Cropping - a share cropper is a farm tenant who pays rent with a portion ,often half, of the crop he raises, sharecropping became a method of land lease that eventually made people feel like they where in a new form of slavery. Many African Americans did not have land of their own, so many, in order to obtain land of thier own were drawn into schemes where they worked a portion of the land owned by a Land Lord for a share of the profit from the crops. They would get all the seeds, food, and equipment they needed from the company store, that allowed them to run a tab throughout the year to pay it back when the crops where ready. When accounting time came, the tenant was always a few dollars short of what he owed the landowner, so he began the new year with a debt. As that debt grew, it became impossible to get rid of the situation. Share croppina and Tenant Farming 14th Amendment was originally intended to protect the legal rights of freed slaves , which reduced the number of members a state had in the house.
