    'The main effect of reconstruction for African Americans was the introduction of the Jim Crow Laws'
    Explain why you agree or disagree with this view.

    I need the base the essay on the years between 1865-1877 but I can write about the long term effects also.

    I am terrible at writing essays and would really appreciate some help if possible. I was told what each paragraph is supposed to be based on and my teacher said it should go in this order;

    paragraph 1: Jim Crow Laws
    paragraph 2: The KKK
    paragraph 3: Black codes
    paragraph 4: economic effects
    paragraph 5: political effects. e.g. voting
    paragraph 6: conclusion

    I was told to write the good an bad points for each of the paragraph and decide if I think the Jim Crow Laws was the main effect. I think that what the question means.

    Any help would be extremely grateful.
