Reconstruction DBQ

 

North or South:

Who Killed Reconstruction?

 

 

“Is This a Republican Form of Government?

 

Is This Protecting Life, Liberty, or Property?”

Overview: The twelve years after the Civil War proved to be a difficult time for America. Called Reconstruction by historians, this era saw an increase of freedom for former slaves. However, there was also great resistance to change. In 1877, attempts to reconstruct the South officially ended, leaving white-only governments in power. This DBQ asks you to decide who, North or South, was most responsible for the end of Reconstruction.
