Kendall Beckley 10-26-10 History The reconstruction was a very difficult time for everyone to get used to. It caused a lot of  hatred between races. The basic facts of reconstruction were, that slavery was abolished, black  and white people were to live among each other, and that we should all stay and be free. White  people back then saw it as loosing all their money so they were not happy with the blacks.  Life during Reconstruction was war between both sides. Racial tension in the south was  extremely high, they didn’t know how to get along with each other. Segregation was a huge part  of the south. Separate bathrooms, separate schools, black people were hit and hung, white  people were hated and probably beaten also. Black people couldn’t find work because no one  wanted to hire them, so they were all poor and homeless unless they knew someone. Life after reconstruction things got better but racism still exist and existed. Both sides  tolerated each other better, but not all the time. A lot of black people came from the south to north  during” The Great Migration.” They got work and were treated as humans again. Childress’s statements about how African Americans couldn’t get work were proved true.
