If you don't know yet, reconstruction is the effort to reorganize the seceded states and bring them back to us (the Union). Why do we need reconstruction, you ask? Let's be honest, right now, our country is a mess, the seceded states need to come back, the slaves have no where to go, the South's economy is failing, etc. I mean, just take a look at one of the South's states! Take Texas, for example. Their transportation system is destroyed, their plantation system has collapsed, and their economy is in ruins!
