reconstruction was a very long process that affected the social,political,and economic lives of the Texans. reconstruction also meant establishing a new relationship with whites and former slaves, political reconstruction involved writing a new state constitution that rejected the concepts of secession and slavery.
carpetbaggers are Notherners who moved to the south after the American Civil war especially during reconstruction, order to profit from the instability and power that existed at this time. many Texans viewed carpetbaggers as opportunists looking to profit from the regions misfortunes.
Redeemers and Democrats
I am against the redeemers and democrats. i would side with the republicans because i don't belive in slavery.
