Anti-Reconstruction

Please join and help us get rid of Reconstruction!!

What is wrong with it?

We don't want to admit secession was illegal. We want slavery to keep the farms going. We don't want the Union telling us what to do.

Black Codes

We need laws to restrict the new freedman. We need to keep them uneducated, but keep them working for the plantations. These new codes will severely punish those who do not work. It will also fine them for not working. Other codes will be created to keep the blacks from gaining true freedom and independence.
