When was the slaves free in the south?

Officially slaves were freed in 1865, but they were still slaves once the Black Codes were enacted in the south, which happened to take away their freedoms that congress had just given to them. This was after the federal troops pulled out after the reconstruction plan had taken place (in the South). ~ After the Emancipation Proclamation and the Black Codes, people of color still were not granted full rights of citizenship until the late 1960's in the United States (inalienable rights). Rather than being publicly enslaved on plantations, they were lynched, tortured, raped, WHIPPED, beaten, dragged to death, and most often imprisoned, simply for being non-white throughout the southern states. The remnants of the confederate's historic inhumanity toward African Americans can still be seen today in the rhetoric of those attempting to blame Our first President who is non-white, President Obama, with the tragic mistakes committed by the previous President, who was white (bush).

What happened to the native Americans as a result of Westward expansion?

As colonists moved west, they pushed the Native American's farther to the west as well. The government often set aside reservations that they would force Native Americans to move to. Tensions between the United States government and tribes led to tragic events such as the Wounded Knee Massacre and the Trail of Tears.
