Anti-Reconstruction

Anti-Reconstruction

The southern states still wanted slavery and the north didn't want that. The black codes were passed because the south did not respect them, they couldn't run for office or vote.The Ironclad Oath was an Oath promoted by Radical Republicans and opposed by President Abraham Lincoln. By requiring officials and voters to swear they had never supported the Confederacy, it limited the political activity of ex-Confederate soldiers and supporters. The southerners were still mad about not having slaves anymore so the southerners wanted to get revenge so that is why the Klu Klux Klan is so popular in the southern states.
