Retreat( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Reconstruction was fifully under way in 1867. New state constitutions were drafted, black freedmen voted and were elected to southern legislatures, and white southerners struggled to regain control of their land in the new South. The 1868 Presidential Election was a referendum on Reconstruction. Although many agreed with the Democrats' openly-white supremacist platform, more people were soothed by the 'Let us have peace' theme of Ulysses S. Grant's campaign. Secret societies meant to intimidate or harm blacks back into subservience developed across the South, causing President Grant to declare martial law in South Carolina. When White Leaguers struck in New Orleans, President Grant responded by sending in federal troops. A more sweeping civil rights bill was passed but was never widely enforced. Chaos reigned in Mississippi as whites attacked and killed blacks that attempted to vote. This time Grant refused to help." --from container
Revolution( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"After President Lincoln was assassinated, the great work of reconstruction took on greater urgency -- and concern. No one knew what to expect from new President Andrew Johnson as he announced his plan for Presidential Reconstruction. Black Civil Rights were a revolutionary idea. Across the South, landowners drew up contracts to keep their former slaves in the cotton fields. And southern state legislatures passed Black Code laws that prohibited freedmen from any work except as field hands. A group in Congress, led by Thaddeus Stevens, formed the Radical Republican faction to fight for black rights. During the 1866 mid-term elections, the Radical Republicans won a great majority in both houses and used their new power to pass a plan that divided the South up into five military districts." --from container
