Conditions In The South
The South’s reaction to reconstruction was not good at all; the freedmen’s bureau was at the top of the list of things the south resented, along with the ratification of the 13th-15th amendments. The freedmens bureau really helped the freed slaves during reconstruction. The government agency helped the freed slaves get back on their feet by helping them find a source of income and shelter, because they knew it would be extremely hard for them to do it on their own. Carpetbaggers or the northeners that went to the south during reconstruction played a main role in helping the south get back into the federal government.
