Good Essays

Death, something saddening to many nutrol for others, but what about if it 's the death of an era not a person. The question is, who was responsible for the ending of Reconstruction (To rebuild/fixing after war): Northern Neglect or Southern Resistance? Though there is no question. The North’s neglecting to the south was a primary reason for the ending of reconstruction because during that era a large percentile of the North made up the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), which that specific group was largely opposed to the reconstruction of the South as well as they were supremacist; which means, “an advocate of the supremacy of a particular group, especially one determined by race or sex. or relating to or advocating supremacy of a particular group.” The KKK were so opposed to slavery, and the reconstruction that they went as far as to kill many southern congressmen just because they were pro-reconstruction (Doc. B). The other reason that the north was primarily responsible for the ending of reconstruction was the fact that the north got to the point where they started neglecting the south and putting the reconstruction as their last priority (Doc. D). The north did this from getting tired of fixing south’s problems (Doc. C), along with many other reasons. The north could have helped the reconstruction with so much, but they gave up, they gave up on part of their country. They quit something that could have changed history. Though if they didn’t quit how would the world be today.
