13. The Origins of the New South

The absence of slavery in the South after the Civil War led to a demand for labor.  The demand was met with the sharecrop and crop-lien systems.  The antebellum attitudes had not changed in the South, leading to the early and widespread passage of Jim Crow laws.  The laws were intended to keep African Americans politically and economically powerless and were highly effective.

The specific focus of this unit will be on:

A. Reconfiguration of southern agriculture: sharecropping and crop-lien system

B. Expansion of manufacturing and industrialization

C. The politics of segregation: Jim Crow and disfranchisement
