Redeemers or Democrats?
Reconstruction and Carpetbaggers
Democrats opposed the Radical Republicans and their new laws. They disagreed on the militia, state police, and taxes.Texans strongly hated how the other Confederate States were refusing to follow the 14th amendment, and how because of that Texas and the other southern states got put under military rule. Reconstruction was harsh on the South in many ways.
