Reconstruction changed life in the South in several ways, but only temporarily. First, it helped the emancipated slave populations to assume leadership roles in Southern society and otherwise break with their enslaved pasts. Second, it served as a stabilizing and development factor for industrial and agricultural rebuilding throughout the South.
