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.
