This chapter seemed particularly swamped with names and dates of questionable importance. Here are the main ideas I pulled out of the chapter that seemed quiz-worthy. Anything I'm missing? 1.) Rapier supported the Military Reconstruction Act of 1867, which asked southern states to: - draft constitutions allowing black political participation - ratify the 14th Amendment extending the Bill of rights to ALL Americans. (p. 304-305) 2.) Rapier grew up in Canada, where he was well educated at Buxtom Methodist Church (p. 305-306) 3.) In 1870 Rapier was the first black to receive a party nomination for secretary of state (p. 306) 4.) Rapier self published Montgomery's Republican Sentinel paper, which issued 1,000 copies a week for free (p. 307) 5.) Rapier's main focus in congress was to advance black rights, but many of his efforts were unsuccessful

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
