The Freedmen's Bureau and and organization, called the Union League, work together together to help freedmen get registered to vote. Together they have registered almost 50,000 freedmen. Some whites tried to stop the freedmen from exercising their rights, by joining the Ku Klux Klan (KKK). They have burnt down three freedmen's homes in the past four days. But, they don't only attack freedmen, they also oppose people who help the reconstruction like carpetbaggers, Northerners who moved to the South to help, and scalawags, who were white southerners who supported reconstruction.
