Obstacles While Traveling

        

     Slavery and involuntary servitude is over.  Their

   guaranteed rights were right to be in charge of  

   themselves.

The 13th Amendment

  

     All people born in the U.S, and former slaves are full U.S. citizens.  Their guaranteed rights were they have the same rights as white men and all U.S. citizens.

The 14th Amendment

     All male citizens can vote and this right can not be taken away based on color, race, or slavery.  Their guaranteed rights were all white 

and colored men can vote.

The 15th Amendment

     Many people moved to working in the factories instead of working on the farm. Cotton prices fell and the cotton destroyed the soil and ripped it of its nutrients.  Also the boll weevil destroyed cotton crop by eating it up.  These two things forced farmers to stop farming and find job elswhere.  Troops were also pulled out of the South and African Americans had to protect themselves from intimidation by Southerners used against them.
