The South killed Reconstruction most by their resistance against the North. Reconstruction started after the Civil war between 1865-1876. During the Civil War, the North and South battled, (The North won) and the South laid in ruins. The United States was willing to let the South back in under some conditions, and that marked the day Reconstruction started. During the Reconstruction era, the South resisted the North’s help and Reconstruction died.

Reconstruction - the federal government plan to solve the issues formed from the end of the Civil War – can be divided into 2 parts: physically rebuilding the South and reconstructing the Southern Society. The goal of the reconstruction politically was to integrate Southern states/rebel states back into the U.S., and socially was to integrate the freed slave population to the society. However, ex-confederates of the South resisted this because of the fear of complete turnover of their lives, and to maintain the social hierarchy, where African Americans remained at the bottom by default due to their race. Several organizations such as the Ku Klux Klan were formed to resist reconstruction and preserve white supremacy. Congress responded to the resistance by establishing the Freedmen 's Bureau, whose aimed was to build public schools and universities, provide food and medical care, political equality between blacks and whites and equal access to the judicial system.
After the Civil War, the nation was very obliterated - metaphorically and literally. Tensions between the North and the South were very high, and the fact that a lot of the land where battles had been fought was destroyed didn’t help at all. One side of Congress used Reconstruction to try and fix a divided country, while Congress in the South were behind the scenes tearing it apart even more. “‘The Compromise of 1877’ was the South’s last bit of ammunition against African Americans and abolitionists.” (Source 4) Since this tore the nation apart even more, and the South was not agreeing with anything that national congress was saying, national congress was forced to make an actual
During the civil war, many Americans lost and risked their lives to fight for their beliefs, emancipating the slaves or the White supremacy. The civil war resulted with the freedom of slaves and the period of Reconstruction (1865-1877). The Reconstruction tried to solve the problem of what would happen to the freed men and how the government would reintegrate the Southern States into the Union. Both of the said events caused social, political, and economic changes to American society. In 1868, the 14th Amendment was created as a result of the emancipation of slaves.

How Society Affected Harper Lee In the book “To Kill a Mockingbird”, Harper Lee opened our eyes to how unfairly African Americans were treated in the 1930’s. The society Lee grew up in had a lot of racism and segregation. This society affected her in many ways that we can see throughout her book.

The north and south had different perspectives on slavery. The north clearly opposed slavery while the south supported it. Slavery was important to the southerners because they relied on the slaves for all of the manual labor.

During the 1850s and 1860s in America, many new ideas arose from people in the North and the South on how the country should be. The North and South could not come to a consensus on political and economic issues. This sectionalism between the North and the South eventually caused the South to secede from the Union. One economic issue that the North and South could not agree on was slavery. The economy of the South was mostly agricultural and they relied on slaves for labor.
As the United States of America developed as a country, the North and the South started differing in their economies, culture, and lifestyle. This created many problems for the United States because the South did not agree on the North 's views. In fact, the South was so different that they considered forming their own country. The South desired to preserve the institution of slavery, the principle of States’ Rights, and that all states in Confederacy issued an Article of Secession to break from the Union. One factor that led the South wanting to secede from the Union was that the South wanted to preserve slavery.
The Confederacy fought for slavery and states’ rights. During the war, the South faced poverty and struggled to gain support from foreign countries. The Confederacy was also known for being the rebels. The Confederates seceded because they wanted to hold on to slavery, states’ rights, and political liberty for whites. They thought that the election of Abraham Lincoln threatened their way of living based on slavery.

After the Civil War and Reconstruction ceased, the South 's Lost Cause was introduced to the southern United States by ex-confederates. A very politically influenced movement, the Lost Cause, while building a legacy for the controversial Redemption, was subject to backlash for it 's false interpretations of what slavery was like as well as how they interpreted the event of the Civil War. Even with all of its misinterpretations and falsities, however, the Lost Cause influenced the memories of many of the Civil War, Redemption, and slavery for generations to come. The lost cause was spurred by ex Confederates as a way to get back at the union and to prove that the Confederate spirit was not lost, even though the Civil War had ended years ago. As seen from articles from Confederate Veteran Magazine, the Confederate spirit was upheld throughout the years, mostly by women who felt the need to avenge husbands, brothers, and fathers ' deaths .
