Reconstruction (1865-1877) in American History refers to the period in the South following the Civil War in which the region went through both a physical, political, and social transformation. After four years of civil war, the United States established conditions that would allow the southern states back into the Union.
Much of the Southern United States was destroyed by the war and needed to be rebuilt. Following the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, President Andrew Johnson wanted to follow Lincoln's plan for lenience towards the Confederate States. New Amendments were added to the Constitution; sharecropping replaced the plantation system, and the Freedman's Bureau helped educate and assist the over four million ex-slaves. There was great opposition towards much of the plans and the Black Codes were established by Southerners to prevent giving the freed slaves their newly given rights and freedoms. Some Northerners took advantage of the situation and earned the name "carpetbaggers" based on the large briefcases that they would carry.
Included in this set are images of President Johnson; a sharecropper's farm and sharecroppers working in the field; ruined and war torn landscape; a Freedman's schoolhouse; a carpetbagger; sign representing the dates of the Reconstruction Era and a Black Codes sign; three new Amendments - 13th, 14th, and 15th.
The set will download as a zip file which is easy peasy to open! You'll then see your individual images and will be good to go!
