From this letter you can see Tourgees clear use of the word “another” meaning that other Republican men were targeted and killed by the KKK all because they fought to have the South follow the same rules as the North. It was as though the KKK felt personally battered so they enjoyed doing to same to men that caused such emotions. Politics within the white community was not the only issue. As mentioned before African Americans did not get the political freedom that was actually granted to them not only because of their race and low standing but they were “ ‘unfitted for the proper exercise of political duties… blacks needed a period of probation and instruction’ “ (Document D). The idea of them being an unfit race who was in need of probation and instruction seemed to more closely relate to white Klansmen of the South.
The Reconstruction was unsuccessful because it was never finished and faced a big problem, the president get assassinated.The main point was to help the South been how it was before in terms of economic issues . The South was destroyed because a lot of battles of the Civil War were fought there. Another problem faced in the Reconstruction was the free slaves issue, after the Reconstruction had ended, freed slaves who had been elected to federal and state officials were quickly voted out, and the Southerners used violence and terror groups like the Ku Ku Klan to enforce the policies of the Solid South. After all, Reconstruction didn 't really help the South, and it was never a real Reconstruction.
The South would end up rejoining the Union as a crippled, angry population. This is not the outcome the Union had hoped for. Sherman’s march through the South abused the innocent in order to punish and eventually defeat the guilty. He ruined the lives of many civilians in the South and generations of southern civilians to come. This punishment of the whole population showed that Sherman had no interest in a united country.
The south wanted to end all reconstruction effort. The south killed reconstruction because of their lack of interest in equal rights, their violence towards the north and blacks. “He was stabbed five or six
Andrew Jackson: A Monster Some may think that Andrew Jackson was a hero, but his horrific actions during his time as president, prove otherwise. While he was president, he did many things that made a negative impact to our country. Nobody should forget these things, for they are what make him a monster. Those things include, The Trail of Tears, the fact that he enjoyed violence, and that he was a murderer. To begin, Andrew Jackson was the reason that so many Indians had to leave their homes.
n A The Reconstruction begin as the Civil War had ended, American had fallen apart. It was to repair and renew the North and South but it also damaged the nation. Both sides had deal with vast amounts of damage. The south had suffered the destruction of their factories, railroads, the now worthless Confederate money, and mainly their slave-worked farms. The north suffered mainly from the political turmoil that was left in the aftermath of the war.
As a leader in the civil rights movement, King was naturally seen as a threat by those who opposed the civil rights gains he was helping to orchestrate. Additionally, there was an anti-Communist fever in the country at the time, and King was perceived as having ties to Communist ideology. Martin Luther King Jr. was assinated because he was talking about things that other people did not want him to talk about. Like, the Vietnam war and slavery. So the people that the only way to silence him was to kill him.
He exemplified the ways of both a hero and a villain. However, it is my opinion that he is a villain. I believe this because he could be an extremely violent leader and because he never fully reigned over one of the places he conquered/ruled. He is a villain because he murdered thousands of people and soldiers from different nations. Alexander tortured many of his victims and then he killed them.
The North ended the Reconstruction because they were too busy to look after the South, they were racist to African Americans, and they removed soldiers from Southern states. America was well into the Reconstruction and the nation was happy. The election of 1876 ruined the dreams of over 3 million African Americans. The winner of the election of 1876 was Rutherford B. Hayes. President Hayes was a member of the Democratic party, but actually did not win the election until later.
With no final agreement, the country had no other choice but to go to war with itself. The slow decline of the, once powerful, Southern economy and the major issue of the abolishment of slaves are what led to the cause of the American Civil War. While economics and political structure played an important role in the cause of the Civil War, slavery was the main reason why altercations arose. Many historians and teachers try to hide the fact that slavery was such a huge factor in the cause of the Civil War because they looked at slavery as the “norm”. To them, the differences between the Republicans and Democratic formed great disagreement.
According to document D many people argued that blacks were unfit to be government officials because they needed time to forget the things done to them when they were slaves and to learn “…true methods of gaining honorable subsistence…” The people of the North grew tired of dealing with problems that did not directly involve them, and reverted back to old racist ways which ultimately contributed to the fall of
