Yes, these all help better describe the process of Reconstruction in the South. We will take our time and answer the questions for each document as a whole class.

On Block 2 we will organize this information as evidence to help us better wrestle with and discuss our guiding questions:

  1. Were African Americans free during Reconstruction?  In what ways?
  2. What does it mean to be free?
  3. Based on these documents, was Reconstruction a success or failure?
