Reconstruction Ended
President Hayes kept his campaign promise to remove Federal troops from the South, ending the period known as Reconstruction. The order was given on May 1, 1877. The decision to end Reconstruction and return the rule to Southerners soon resulted in the disenfranchisement of Blacks in the South.
