Why did the Texans hate Reconstruction and carpetbaggers?
Texas hated Reconstruction because it put them and other Southern States except Tennessee under military rule. This act also divided all ten states into 5 military districts. Texas was combined with Louisiana and placed in the 5th district and put under the command of General Philip H. Sheridan.
Do I support Redeemers and Democrats??????????
The Redeemers called a Constitution convention to re-write the Constitution. It would limit the power of the governor and let the legislator meet every other year. As a result, African Americans lost most of the social ground they had gained.
