What is The Reconstruction Era?

The Reconstruction Era is is what happened after the Civil War. Many changes were over things between the North/South, and the main reason was how they were going to deal with slavery. So Congress and the President passed off 3 new Amendments(13-15th Amendments) that all were for slavery.It gave them the right to vote (only men), become citizens,and no longer be slaves.

But many other bad things happened as well,like President Lincoln being assassinated,the South's economy being very badly due to the war, and in the South, they had put the Black Code which separates the Whites from the African Americans in certain places, which is not giving them they're full freedom.
