RECONSTRUCTION AND THE COMPROMISE OF 1877 3 United States did not treat the south as one of the other defeated nations. By the year 1861 the confederacy was brought up and was aimed at secession and was the right held up by the states. The general feeling was that, when the state was to join the union then it could voluntarily leave the union (Sobran, 2012) . Abraham Lincoln did not want to comprehend the issue behind right to secede and he was viewing the states as rebellion but not as a way to separate the nations (History. 2009). The compromise that took place in 1877 entailed the political bargain and ended the reconstruction era. In the year 1876, Rutherford B. Hayes was in the ballot as the republican in the presidential elections. On the other hand, Samuel Tilden ran as the Democrat, the reconstruction party was for the republican. Because of the lingering animosity that emanates from civil war made the democrats dominate the south. Because of all this issue, then the election ended up being decided by the electrical commission. The commission went through a challenging time while deducing who was supposed to announce the winner. The end analysis was that the compromise was reached. When Hayes was chosen as the overall winner, then the Republicans would then agree to end all the reconstruction. While the reconstruction came to an end, then the hope of the involved African American rights that were in the south faded away and died. Thereafter, the southern democrats promised to protect the civil and well as the political rights of the blacks
