S a sharecropper argue whether or not the period of Reconstruction was inherently good for the recovering nation.

These are the instructions given for the paper. I would like to take the point as a sharecropper.

After the Civil War, tensions still ran high on both sides of the Mason Dixon. Whether we consider politicians, sharecroppers, ex-Confederates, the Klan, former union soldiers, or plantation or business owners, there is evidence of anger, and unresolved conflict. In your first paper, from one of the above mentioned perspective, argue whether or not the period of Reconstruction was an inherently good for the recovering nation. Remember to provide a claim or thesis, and to back up your claim with evidence from the text or other cited sources.
