Civil War paper outline
The question: Before and after the Civil War, white southerners (and whites beyond the South, too) worked to maintain a system of white supremacy. What were the key components to this system (think about limits placed on mobility, segregation, access to property and education, violence, etc.)? How did this system preserve a power structure? How did the system change (or stay the same) between the mid-nineteenth century (mid-1800s) and the mid-twentieth century (mid-1900s)?
The directions: Fill in the appropriate sections of the outline below, using documents from the readings in weeks 7 and 8. You should use one primary quote for each section but may use more. Secondary evidence should be in your own words. Cite both primary and secondary evidence.
