Profile of the Reconstruction Era
音量
Hi, my name is Kyle Wegner and today we're going to talk about the
Reconstruction Era. History is about people, people are interesting and
exploring history is interesting!1865 to 1877, the period after the American Civil War, is known as the "Reconstruction Era". This was the process of rebuilding the country and bringing the two former enemies back into one Nation.Reconstruction is thought of as America's first experiment in interracial democracy. The Thirteenth, Fourteenth, and Fifteenth Amendments made big changes to the Constitution.African Americans were almost fourteen percent of the nation's population at that time and these new amendments brought hope. Slavery was now a federal crime, with citizenship for all Americans, and a the right to vote for all males, not just white males.The Reconstruction Act of 1867, temporarily divided the South into five military districts. It outlined how the rights to vote were to be organized. It also required southern states to ratify the 14th Amendment, that widened the definition of citizenship and granted "equal protection" of the Constitution to former slaves.Thanks for watching, I'm Kyle Wegner.
