    In 1863, the reconstruction of America began. This was the year when the Civil War was still ongoing, and President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, declaring that all slaves in Confederate territory were to be set free.

  • 4. 

    Which of these visions was not established during the reconstruction?

    • A.

      Emancipationist vision

    • B.

      Reconciliationist vision

    • C.

      Freedom vision

    • D.

      White supremacist vision

    Correct Answer
    C. Freedom vision
    Explanation
    During the reconstruction period, various visions were established, including the Emancipationist vision, which focused on granting freedom and equal rights to former slaves, and the Reconciliationist vision, which aimed to heal the divisions between the North and the South. The White supremacist vision, which sought to maintain white dominance and suppress the rights of African Americans, was also established. However, the Freedom vision was not established during the reconstruction. This suggests that the reconstruction period did not prioritize the overall freedom and empowerment of all individuals, particularly African Americans.

    Correct Answer
    D. Southern America
    Explanation
    During the period of reconstruction, Southern America was the region that received the most attention and was most closely associated with the reconstruction efforts. This is because the Southern states had been heavily affected by the Civil War and needed significant assistance in rebuilding their economy, infrastructure, and social systems. The reconstruction policies implemented by the federal government were primarily focused on addressing the issues and challenges faced by the Southern states, such as the abolition of slavery, the reintegration of former slaves into society, and the establishment of civil rights for African Americans.

    California did not participate in reconstruction. Reconstruction refers to the period after the Civil War in the United States when efforts were made to rebuild and reform the South. California, being a state in the western part of the country, was not directly affected by the war and therefore did not participate in the reconstruction efforts that focused on the Southern states.

    Abraham Lincoln began his 'Ten percent plan' in 1863. This plan was a proposal for the reconstruction of the Confederate states after the American Civil War. It aimed to reintegrate the southern states back into the Union by offering amnesty to those who pledged loyalty to the United States and accepted the abolition of slavery. The plan required at least 10% of the voting population in each state to take an oath of loyalty before they could form a new state government. This plan was seen as a lenient approach towards the Confederate states and was an important step towards the eventual reunification of the United States.
