The answer you are looking for is found at the source of the question. In order to find this we must go back into that timeframe and think of how an organization would try to restore white supremacy in the southern states. An organization would do this by degrading another race. This can be accomplished through a process of lynching or just public humiliation. It's the kkk. Hope you enjoyed the extra stuff!

How did the end of the civil war led to segregation?

The end didn't lead to segregation, the racism of Southerners did. The North winning the war did nothing to change Southerners views on Blacks. So they formed the KKK, terrorized anyone trying to help Blacks, and did all they could to keep Blacks at the bottom of Southern society and unequal. Segregation was simply a logical end to these racist beliefs.
