The 15th Amendment

What took place and how did they people affected help.

The civil war was fought to free slaves. The North wanted African Americans to be equal to them but the South relied on the their "slaves" to do their farm work. It was time for change in America. Some African Americans took up arms to help fight for their friends and their freedom as well. Many would die but their cause didn't go in vain because look how far we have come today.
