For instance, the writer claims that the book Uncle Tom’s Cabin and its common predecessor who attacks the topic of slavery in order for the abolitionists to unite together and fight for the same beliefs, isn’t fair or moral since they were disrupting the peaceful state that the U.S was in and shifting the people apart even more. On the other hand, the other passage written by the Southern literary messenger of Richmond also opposed Mrs. Stowe;s tale but he/she had a very biased opinion towards the South so he/she just argued using his/her untrustworthy opinion and very little knowledge.

To what extent did The Ku Klux Klan prevented African Americans from gaining Civil Rights in the years 1960-64? Throughout the 1950s and 1960s, the Ku Klux Klan re-emerged, feeling that their goal of white supremacy was being challenged by the Civil Rights Campaign. Between these years they created many problems for the campaign, and could even be blamed for the lack of Civil Rights legislation in this period. One of the key ways in which the Klan blocked any progress was through intimidation and fear. In many Southern States the force and presence of the Klan was enough to dissuade African Americans from joining the campaign - Mississippi, as state with the highest amount of Klan activity also had the lowest amount of registered African American voters, and the lowest amount of NAACP activists.

Northerners administered Radical reconstruction of the south after winning the civil war, but yet Southern Democrats returned to power again. Northerners gradually became tired of the feud between the north and the south and never had a strong commitment to strive for full civil rights for African Americans. They voted for Radical Republicans due to the fact that they were angry and annoyed of the South’s unwillingness to compromise rather than their pride in the North’s quest to bring the southern states back into the union and allow former slaves to exercise the rights of free men and women. Thomas Nast uses imagery, symbolism, and an allegory in his cartoons to influence the public’s opinion against Johnson and the southern confederacy while promoting equality for African Americans.
The civil war was started in 1861 which was caused by slavery. It was suppose to be a white man's war.
