Hi all,
This is my first post, please excuse any guideline or community errors.

I am a high school history teacher and am looking for a historical connection between Reconstruction profits and antebellum money. Is there a text which connects the Federal "powers that be" prior to the Civil War and those who gained financially from the Reconstruction policies? Are these the people who created the very corrupt political machines during the administrations of Hayes, Garfield, Arthur, Cleveland and etc who were responsible for the political deadlock after Hayes?

As a side note: Does the Democratic power in the south change segregation policies as a direct response to Populism coming in from the West?

These are big questions for an eleventh grader and any texts which could be used for clarification would be an asset to my class.

Thanks for any assistance given,
Paul Crawford
