Students review Reconstruction with this graphic organizer, image analysis, and questions review. Topics covered include scalawags, carpetbaggers, Exodusters, Black Codes, the Freedman's Bureau, the 13th/14th/15th amendments, Johnson's impeachment and more! There are 5 images to analyze (with 4 prompts to respond to for each image) and 9 questions to answer, plus the graphic organizer. Answers are included where appropriate.
