In the history of the United States, the term Reconstruction Era has two senses: the first covers the entire nation in the period 1865-1877 following the Civil War- the second one, used in this article, covers the transformation of the Southern United States from 1863 to 1877, with the reconstruction of state and society in the former Confederacy. In battles between the president and Congress, the president prevailed until the election of 1866, which enabled the Radical Republicans to take control of policy, remove from power the ex-Confederates, and enfranchise the Freedmen (freed slaves).

A Republican coalition came to power in the southern states and set out to radically transform the society, with support from the Army and the Freedmans Bureau. Conservative white Democrats, alleging widespread corruption, counterattacked and regained power in each state by 1877, often with violence. The Freedmen became second class citizens, while most Southern whites became embittered toward the North and formed a Democratic Solid South.
