Reconstruction!

should we reconstruct?

there are multiple laws that need to be addressed

1. all states had to accept the13th amendment to join back to the u.s
2. states had to declare there secession had been illegal.
3.states had to cancel all war debts
4. to receive the right to vote, all adult white males had to declare loyalty to the united states.

why southerners hated these laws

they had to actually work to earn money and feed there families. also they lost all the money they had spent on buying the slaves. also it disrupted there whole economic system, which in turn brought the prices of food up and the and the demand was in greater quantity.
