S TUDY G UIDE : “T HE P OLITICS OF R ECONSTRUCTION Using this study guide The following document has all of the terms, quotes, lists, and ideas contained in the most recent powerpoint presentation (note: I change these frequently so some variations may exist). As a result, you should not feel that you need to copy any of this information while in class. The following questions are addressed in this section of the lecture. You should be able to answer these questions by the end of this section. If you can’t, see me during my office hours or talk with your seminar leader: What are the three political stages of reconstruction and what makes them different? What was actually settled by the Civil War? What was not? What were Lincoln’s, the Radical Republicans’, and Johnson’s view of a Reconstructed South? Why was the concept of confiscation so critical to Radical Republicans? The following are sample essay questions used on previous exams dealing with this topic. The essay question used on your upcoming exam will look quite a bit (maybe exactly) like these: Describe, using specific examples, the politics and policies surrounding the three broad phases of Reconstruction. What were the goals of freedmen, Northerners, and white Southerners during each of these stages? In the end, was the South “reconstructed” (be sure and justify your answer)? In class I used the phrase “one kind of freedom” to describe the politics of Reconstruction. Using specific examples, what were these new freedoms? Why did they not succeed during the era?
