Texans hated reconstruction and carpetbaggers!
They had to write a new state constitution that rejected the concepts of secession and slavery, and They had to create a new labor system to replace the institution of slavery. They also hated carpetbaggers because they thought that they were dishonest adventurers and there only property was what they carried in there carpet bags. They also seized political power and they robbed the helpless southerners.
I dont support the democrats because i think that slavery was wrong and everybody should be treated equal and not be judged by the color of their skin.
