Congress's Idea

Lasting Impact

Reconstruction was a success , because the Confederacy was destroyed for good. Slavery was outlawed with the 13th Amendment. The 14th Amendment defined citizenship and protected all Americans. The 15th Amendment extended suffrage to all men, which means that all men had the right to vote. The Civil Rights Act passed in 1875. The bill was aimed to get rid of discrimination in public places. Lincoln’s goal in the Civil War was to hold the nation together as one. Overall it was a success because the nation came together as the “United States”. The separation between the north and the south ended. New Amendments were added to grant all colors equal rights. Reconstruction and the Civil War helped resolve the federalism dispute between Kentucky and Virginia. Because of reconstruction the United States was a nation and not just a country.

Civil Rights



The Compromise of 1877 was a way to calm down the South by removing military troops, revealing that Rutherford B. Hayes won by just 1 vote (185 to Samuel J. Tilden’s 184) and to end Reconstruction Era.http://www.history.com/topics/us-presidents/compromise-of-1877The Jim Crow Laws are what oppressed freed slaves after they were made free until 1965 when the Civil Rights movement was put into playhttp://www.nps.gov/malu/forteachers/jim_crow_laws.htm

Military Reconstruction Act how it divided up the South map…

The only two African Americans to serve as United States Senators in the nineteenth century were Blanche K. Bruce and Hiram Revels, both of Mississippi. Frederick Douglass was appointed to several important governmental positions in the years after the Civil War, including Minister Resident and Counsel General to Haiti, Recorder of Deeds, and U. S. Marshall.

Plan Comparison

The first constitution act is the first law that divided up the five districts in the south except Tennessee who had already ratified the 14th amendment. This law was created in 1867 over the veto of president Andrew Johnson. All of these states were required for them to ratify the 13th and the 14th Amendment.
