This time period was one of the bloodiest in American history. Plantation owners had several different views, socially, economically, and politically as opposed to the north. However, one the amendments 13,14, and 15 were ratified, plantation owners soon lost their position and soon faded from existence, allowing blacks to further their civil rights movements and leaving a legacy of the supremest attitude of white men, which was not broken until the death of Martin Luther King Jr.
