Product Description
This is a 27 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on Reconstruction - The Reconstruction Amendments. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

The Reconstruction Amendments are the Thirteenth, Fourteenth, and Fifteenth amendments to the United States Constitution, passed between 1865 and 1870, the five years immediately following the Civil War. This group of Amendments are sometimes referred to as the Civil War Amendments.

The Amendments were intended to restructure the United States from a country that was "half slave and half free" (Abraham Lincoln) to one in which the constitutionally guaranteed "blessings of liberty" would be extended to the entire populace, including the former slaves and their descendants.

The laws that came out of these amendments were not popular in the south and the Southern states often circumvented these laws or just did not implement them, beginning a Civil Rights struggle that lasted for more than 100 years in the United States.

The presentation covers the following:
