Im in History 152 at my school and I know nothing about the prompt that was given for my paper. If anyone can help me by giving me help, ideas or readings, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE post!

The prompt:

The end of the Civil War drastically changed the definition of American citizenship, especially for former slaves. Describe the process by which African Americans gained their social and political citizenship rights in Reconstruction and then lost at the end of Reconstruction and after.


Thanks :wavey:

You should start with the 14th Amendment of the Constitution.

I wasn't sure to start with that or the Emancipation Proclamation.
