Texas History

Reasons Why Texans Hated Reconstruction and Carpetbaggers.

  • one reason is because they felt like the Radical republicans saw reconstruction as a way to punish the southerners and gain fair treatment for freedman

  • another reason is the act put Texas and the other southern states under military and the act divided the ten states into five military districts

Mention whether or not you support the Redeemers and Democrats. Explain why.

I support the Redeemers, because they were determined to save Texas from the Radical Republicans.
