1. Opening paragraph: In 1860 through 1877 was a time of change and social development as the United States of America was freshly out of the civil war. -Fluff, facts, when the civil war started ended.
-Thesis the ways in which the social change mounted to form a revolution would involve (List the documents main reasons) (Doc. C, D, E, F, G, I) 2. Body paragraphs:
1. Condone what the information says in documents C/D on how the black man can be trusted with a gun and go to war, but then not be trusted to vote and buy land. Then go to the point of view of the secretary and show how his right contradicts the right of the black man.
2. Talk about documents E/F and how in the first one the freedman is talking about his civil rights and how they should be enforced and why he should have them. Talk about the southern Homestead Act. Then how the senator is relating to the civil rights act and the 14th amendment
3. I would then to finish off the rest of the body paragraphs with docs. G and F. The first one is showing the first vote to be cast by a poor black man with a rich and soldier following behind him, Blacks are now able to vote before women, under military reconstruction acts they have the right to. Document I is showing that the KKK are an ever haunting threat over the black man because of his right to vote and the fact that they are not equal to the white men. 3: Conclusion, restate my thesis and add some fluff and information facts.
