Create Draft Based off of Below Information
For the final Portfolio Project, write a paper about an event in the period of U.S. history up to the era of Reconstruction. This paper must illustrate the perspectives of a specific person or group of people (e.g. freed slaves) within a historically marginalized population. For the purpose of this assignment, we define historically marginalized as people whose perspectives have not been represented in history texts until very recently. Discuss the person`s or group`s era and experiences in context of what was happening around them, prioritizing their experience rather than the established narratives of the dominant experience. Possible perspectives include those of Anne Hutchinson, Pocahontas, or Sojourner Truth.
This paper must include a discussion of the following topics:
A thorough summary of the event, including the incidents that took place and the key individuals involved
The importance of the event in the larger scope of U.S. history
How the event changed the daily life of the person from whose perspective you are writing
A prediction for how the event will make a long-term impact in the lives of those in the under-represented group from which the perspective is being written (keep in mind that this perspective should be written from the time at which the event took place).

Reconstruction of the Post-Civil War Era
Summary of the Event

Due to the freedom of the African Americans and the South’s growing hatred towards slaves, the African Americans were left to suffer harsh instances of discrimination and horrible conditions that saw them left without homes, jobs, education, and money. Given this, the proponents of reconstruction were indicative of the Radical Republicans initiative
