HISTORY AUGUST 23RD 1. DEFINITION History is the changing process in which you gather evidence and interpret the  past. Evidence is based on facts, physical proofs, and sources. We find primary  sources (first­hand sources and original works) and secondary sources (second­ hand and interpreted by person who was not a witness).  2. THEMES Creation of a wealthy nation, debates over freedom, US involvement outside its  borders and inclusión/exclusión. 3. RECONSTRUCTION Has two definitions: 1) process by which confederates stated reunited and 2)  process by which slaves reconstructed their lives. We talked about the Black  codes (limited black people from various aspects by apprenticeship, or returning  black people to the plantation camps, and vagrancy laws, which revolved at the  idea of being vagrant is illegal and you could be returned to the plantation camps  as well). At Congress they started Radical Reconstruction by passing 13  (abolished slavery), 15 (right to vote, this was only for men) and 14 amendments  (everyone born at the US is a citizen and everybody has equal protection to law).  Another part of the Reconstruction is Civil Rights Act in 1875 that promoted equal access to public sites (schools not included). Interracial democracy was also  started at this time. Scalawags and Carpetbaggers are two examples of the ugly  names society gave to white people who wanted or was already helping black  people.  4. FREEDMEN’S BUREAU Government agency was helping black people by giving them lands (at poor  conditions and they didn’t gave them any money to sustain farm), find jobs,  reuniting families, creating schools, supervising employers, marriages done  formally (it’s important to emphasize black marriages wanted to imitate white  marriages to fit into this society; women would stay in home and men would work  to maintain family. In the majority of black families this wasn’t possible because of  their poor conditions, both parents had to work to bring food to family). At this time,  government was very contradictory, they began returning lands to former slave  owners to sustain economy and also because white people wasn’t comfortable with the idea of equality. By the 1900’s, 25% of blacks did own land in South, 60% were white lands. This process was good because it gave the feeling of control to Black people, but bad in the sense they would be in debt. Reconstruction was also for  poor white people; they were also going to schools and they also created their  own schools. Black churches were the main place where leaders would form at  the black communities. Pastor at community was independent, wasn’t ruled by any  authority. Women were the ones organizing retirements and events, so they  became accustomed to making their own decisions and taking control over certain  people (they were also leaders). We also saw Theory of Limited Good, which  consists of a group that is gaining “the good” of another group, and thus, the  second group loses “his good”. It was believed by the white community, the black  people had “stole” their freedom (their good).  5. KU KUX KLAN Ex confederates who intimidated any people who voted Republican, who owned  property, who were politicians.
