    The AP US History course is designed to provide the same level of content and instruction that students would face in a Freshman level college survey class. AP US History classes generally use a college-level textbook as the foundation for the course. The most commonly used textbook is The American Pageant, which is used by 40 percent of all AP US History classes. Students may use supplemental materials, such as review books, to prepare for the examination as well as resources found online such as flashcards or textbook outlines. The College Board does not require that students taking this course take the AP test. However, some high schools may require students to take the exam in order to receive AP credit on their transcripts. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AP_American_History)

    The Southern way of life had been ruined, as crops and farms were destroyed, the slaves had been freed, the cities were burnt down, but still, and many Southerners remained defiant.
    ...
    Define Freedom
    At first, the freed Blacks faced a confusing situation, as many slave owners re-enslaved their slaves after Union troops left.
    Other planters resisted emancipation through legal means, citing that emancipation wasn’t valid until local or state courts declared it.
    ...
    The church became the focus of the Black community life in the years following the war.
    Emancipation also meant education for Blacks, but despite all the gains Blacks made, they still faced severe discrimination and would have to wait a century before truly attaining their rights.

    Union General OliverOliver O. Howard
    The bureau taught about 200,000 Blacks how to read (its greatest success), since most former slaves wanted to narrow the literary gap between them and Whites; the bureau also read the word of God.
    However, it wasn’t as effective as it could have been, as evidenced by the further discrimination of Blacks, and it expired in 1872 after much criticism by racist Whites.
    ...
    Tailor President
    Andrew Johnson came from very poor and humble beginnings, and he served in Congress for many years (he was the only Confederate congressman not to leave Congress when the rest of the South seceded).
    He was feared for his reputation of having a short temper and being a great fighter, was a dogmatic champion of states’ rights and the Constitution, and he was a Tennessean who never earned the trust of the North and never regained the confidence of the South.

    However, Lincoln pocket-vetoed the bill by letting it expire, and the 10% Plan remained.
    It became clear that there were now two types of Republicans: the moderates, who shared the same views as Lincoln and the radicals, who believed the South should be harshly punished.
    Sadly though, Lincoln was assassinated. This left the 10% Plan’s future in question.
    When Andrew Johnson took power, the radicals thought that he would do what they wanted, but he soon proved them wrong by basically taking Lincoln’s policy and issuing his own Reconstruction proclamation: certain leading Confederates were disfranchised (right to vote removed), the Confederate debt was repudiated, and states had to ratify the 13th Amendment.
    ...
    Black Codes
    In order to control the freed Blacks, many Southern states passed Black Codes, laws aimed at keeping the Black population in submission and workers in the fields; some were harsh, others were not as harsh.
    Blacks who “jumped” their labor contracts, or walked off their jobs, were subject to penalties and fines, and their wages were generally kept very low.
    ...
    The radicals wanted to keep the South out of the Union as long as possible and totally change its economy and the moderates wanted a quicker Reconstruction. What happened was a compromise between the two extremes.
