  1. 1. RISE OF RADICAL REPUBLICANS
  2. 2. BLACK CODES  The black codes were started immediately after the American Civil War. Black codes were laws that limited the rights of Blacks. The Black codes were intended to keep Black people from gaining political or economic power.  Black codes kept freedmen from voting, owning guns or serving on juries (unless it involved other Blacks)
  3. 3. BLACKS CODES  In some states Blacks could only work as servants or farm laborers. Blacks had to sign contracts for a year's work. If you did not have a contract you could be arrested and sentenced to work on a plantation.
  4. 4.  Apprentice laws provided for the “hiring out” of orphans and other young dependents to whites, who often turned out to be their former owners. Some states limited the type of property blacks could own, and in other states blacks were excluded from certain businesses or from the skilled trades. Legal marriage between blacks was provided for, but interracial marriage was prohibited.
  5. 5. CONGRESS REACTS TO BLACK CODES BY PASSING 14TH & 15TH AMENDMENTS  When riots and violence broke across the country against Blacks, the Radical Republicans vowed to take control of Reconstruction.
  6. 6. RADICAL REPUBLICANS PASS THE 14TH AMENDMENT 1866
  7. 7. RADICAL REPUBLICANS PASS THE 15TH AMENDMENT 1870

  9. 9. JOHNSON IS IMPEACHED!!  Johnson fired his Secretary of State. He did this because he thought he was disloyal. This made the Senate vote for impeachment of Johnson. Impeachment involves someone who was elected to an office. He is accused of doing something wrong.
  10. 10. JOHNSON IS FOUND NOT GUILTY  Congress tries the case and decides if the person is guilty. If he is found guilty, he loses his job. Johnson was not found guilty.
  11. 11. A NEW PRESIDENT IS ELECTED  Republicans nominated the Union's greatest war hero, Ulysses S. Grant. He became President easily by getting mostly all the Black votes. 500,000 Black men voted in the election.
