▯ 1/21 ▯ Reconstruction  Main Issues- o What is freedom going to look like for 4 million former enslaved black people? o What is going to happen to the land and the resources of the south? (There was a lot of land damage and things and also who was going to own this land? Lots of the big owners who owned that land had died) o How is politics going to work? Who is going to have power and who is going to run things?  Can the people who fought against the Union just come back and act like nothing happened? o No public school systems in the South ▯  Two Phases of Reconstruction o 1. Presidential Reconstruction (1865-67)  Lincoln was assassinated right when the war ended. Johnson (VP now president) was a white southern who stayed loyal to the Union. He was racist yet glad slavery was gone. They are legally recognized as legitimate, but they can’t vote, hold office, or compete with white people economically. He appointed governors in the Southern states who agreed with him on this issue. Known as the “Black Codes”. o 2. Congressional/Radical Reconstruction (1867-77)  They decided black men were to be complete citizens with full rights to vote and hold office and things like that. It was an attempt to come in and make the South look more like the rest of the nation. Conservative- the white people in the south who opposed radical reconstruction (they didn’t want to reinstate slavery but they didn’t want black equality) Pike “The Prostrate State” What is an “American”?  National pride  Consumerism / Commercialism  Capitalism- free market that is profit driven  Gun rights  Convenience  Democracy  Equality of opportunity  Religious freedom  Bigness  Diversity (people and terrain)  Entertainment o Hollywood, music, muscle cars  Availability of higher education  Teaching to tests  Monolingual  Racism  Two party system
