Stop Reconstruction Now!

Join the fight against Reconstruction in the South

Reconstruction and Carpetbaggers

Texans hated Reconstruction because it was helping African Americans get their rights. Also, they felt that it was punishment for seceding from the Union. Carpetbaggers were not very popular among the Texans. Carpetbaggers were hated for moving from the North to the South just to make profit.

Redeemers or Republicans

The Radical Republicans are trying to get revenge for when the South seceded from the Union with Reconstruction. The Redeemers, however, were doing their best to stop the Republicans and regain democratic control in Texas. The Redeemers were doing what the people wanted, stopping reconstruction. That is why they were right.
