In the aftermath of the Civil War, the political, social, and economic status of freedmen became a hotly debated topic, particularly concerning the questions of citizenship and voting. "Am I a man? If I am such, I claim the rights of a man," Henry McNeal Turner thundered to the Georgia State Legislature in 1868 (Sheets, 419). The ratification of the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments (1868, 1870) defined these issues from a Constitutional standpoint, but the actual experiences of African American people in the wake of freedom were far more complicated.
Based on these readings, how did Americans interpret the implications of emancipation in different ways? How was freedom celebrated by some? How was it tied directly to citizenship and voting rights for some? And, for others, how was the freedom of blacks something to be restricted (and even feared)?
