Today we began a simulation on rebuilding the South after the Civil War. We divided up into four groups of interested parties; freedmen, defeated Southern Leaders, Moderate Republican leaders, and Radical Republican leaders. Each group was required to address some important issues regarding how to "fix" the nation now that the war is over. We will resume this activity next class and conclude with a group debate on the issues at hand. It is to your benefit to understand the conclusions your group came to!
