April 6

Today we learned about the 14th Amendment, and how the South decided to purposefully misinterpret it. They made up things called "Black Codes" basically allowing them to make the lives of slaves just as bad as they had been before... It seems as if nothing has really changed in the South after the war,  besides the downfall of the economy. Which is kind of surprising, I expected a whole different backlash than that.
