African Americans and Reconstruction

What should happen with the newly freed slaves? What do they need?

Needed food, shelter, clothing, a way to earn a living, education.

African Americans became sharecroppers. Signed contracts with white landowners to work for pay in return for a share of the crop – never out of debt.

Freedmen’s Bureau

Land

Give former plantation land to freed slaves. Too radical did not happen.

Provided food, clothing, medical care, arranged for work, built schools
