How were southern citizens treated after the civil war?

🥇 Favorite Answer

  • The poor were still poor and the wealthier citizens detested the continuing occupation of the South by federal troops. Many of the poor and ex-slaves became share-croppers and each year became deeper in debt to owners of the land, who also loaned them money each year to buy new seed for their crops
