As stated in the tenth Amendment, the south has the right to secede if seceding was not mentioned in the Constitution, which it was not. In addition, the agreement between the states were broken, allowing the states to secede. The Northern states also gained too much power over the Southern states, causing the South to become a minority in the congress, therefore their rights and opinions were not represented.

Mainly, Reconstruction was unsucessful because of South and North disagreement on the slavery isssue. Firstly, after Emancipation Proclamation was announced, Southern States started to prevent African-Americans from leaving the plantation and moving west, thus creating the black codes. These black codes were several restrictions on African-Americans like voting or serving on juries. Those black codes were a way of Southern states showing their disagreement with the North which showed opposement to the Reconstruction. Secondly, the Radical Republicans were determined not to let Johnson control Reconstruction.
The nation’s mindset revolved around white supremacy, so African Americans were never viewed as human beings, rather, they were viewed as property and white people despised them. White males did not have any respect towards African Americans because they were considered property, so they were put to work as slaves. Once slavery was abolished and president Andrew Johnson heard that congress was planning to grant formerly enslaved people to be viewed as citizens through the passing of the Civil Rights Act of 1866, he immediately vetoed the bill. Johnson was a racist and former slave owner who said, “this is a country for white men, and by God, as long as I am president, it shall be a government for white men.” The president was the person that
The re-rise of the Ku Klux Klan around 1915, combined with the strangle hold Jim Crow laws had on African-Americans in the South, raised pressures in the middle of blacks and whites in the United States. A rush of rough racial meetings started to rise in the 1920s, starting a standout amongst the most socially turbulent times in America 's history. Jim Crow was a well-known minstrel show performed by a white performer who glaringly ridiculed African-Americans. The expression "Jim Crow Law" came to be utilized to depict the isolation framework utilized fundamentally as a part of the South from 1877 to the mid-1950s.
John Brown, one of the fiercest anti-slavery militants in the conflict, tried to bring one of the southern states’ worst fears to fruition when he seized control of an arsenal in Harper’s Ferry, Virginia with the intent of inciting a slave rebellion in the southern heartland. He was ultimately unsuccessful, but his actions in 1859 caused many southerners to believe that the union could no longer
In the famous engraving based on the Boston Massacre, by Paul Revere, the engraving illustrates the conflict tension between the colonists and British officials during the major taxing acts. The image setting encompasses a late afternoon, on King Street. The image displays British soldiers firing into a crowd of civilians, murdering three, and injuring two. The British have the advanatge of weaponary, and auhtority, giving the illusion the soldiers are guilty of assault, by the viewers point of view. An important detail to point out is the colors represented by the soldiers versus the colonists.
On the night of March 5, 1770, A major conflict between the American Colonists and British soldiers arose on King street. The British were taxing the Colonists, and the Colonists were protesting and boycotting against the taxes creating tension between the two sides. Since this happened, the British soldiers are the ones to blame for the Boston Massacre. The British Soldiers are responsible for the Boston Massacre According to the Committee of Boston, (Sam Adams, John Hancock and more…) “ This is without warning of their intention and killed 3 on the spot.”
The Stono Rebellion signified a sense of belligerence in Africans during the mid 18th century. The aggression that the rebels portrayed demonstrated their desire to express their feelings towards the white people that treated them poorly. Hence, the slaves’ desire to kill showed how desperate they were in order to do that expressing. The only right thing for the slaves was to go out and kill every white people whom they despised no matter what age or gender so they can get the freedom promised by the Spanish King in Florida. Indeed, going against the white people would result in massive consequences like immediate death for those rebels and effects which would try to stop this from happening again.
They were against western expansion because they believed it would reduce power and the influence of the party and the northeastern states.

Politically, the South believed that they didn’t have enough power in the government with the Northwest Ordinance, Missouri Compromise, and California statehood. Calhoun claimed that the “many aggressions against the South had destroyed the equilibrium.” The South also believed in the infringement of states’ rights, as Robert Rhett put it, “as an agent of the states, the federal government could not discriminate against the citizens of any state.” They believed that the government had no right to ban slavery anywhere. The American colonists experienced a more extreme version of lack of political rights and power.
Second, they continued to place heavy taxes on the colonists and would pass laws such as the Stamp Act, the Townshend Tariffs, and the Tea Act to increase the taxes for the colonists. The colonists, of course, were very upset by this and felt that they were being treated unfair. This resulted in major conflict between the British supporters, which were called “loyalists,” and the colonists that protested against the British, that were known as the “patriots.” Other important and disastrous events soon followed with all of the taxation such as, the Boston Massacre
In the middle of the town 2 Southerners were holding a black guy at gunpoint. “Of Course he wants to vote the Democratic ticket.” The thing that makes everything worse is that other Southerners weren’t doing anything. Some people knew that it was bad but was too scared to say anything because they thought that they would be targeted also. The KKK had so much power and most of it was from fear not because they liked them or believed in what they stood for.
He believed Jackson needed a reality check. The Indians were there first, it was their land. He force the Natives to move away from their homeland, with brute force.
