Before the Civil War (1861-1865), fls were not allowed to join state militias or the U.S. Army or Navy, and the federal government refused to give passports to free fls.
After the war, the nation adopted three constitutional amendments—the 13th (1865), ending slavery; the 14th (1868), making fls citizens of the United States and prohibiting state laws that denied citizens equal protection under the laws; and the 15th (1870), prohibiting racial discrimination in voting.
The codes were slightly different from state to state, but they usually contained limitations on fl occupations and property owning, and vagrancy laws under which fls could be forced to work for whites if they were considered unemployed.

  HEAD OF STATE : Encyclopedia Entry
Head of state or chief of state is the generic term for the individual or collective office that serves as the chief public representative of a monarchic or republican nation-state, federation, commonwealth or any other political state.
In parliamentary systems the head of state may be merely the nominal chief executive officer of the state, possessing theoretical executive power (hence the description of the United Kingdom monarch's government as Her Majesty's Government, a term indicating that the government acts on her behalf and not parliament's).
A head of state is generally the notional or literal commander-in-chief of a state's armed forces, holding the highest office in all military chains of command.

He was elected governor in 1868, amassed a fortune while in office, and built a mansion on the bluffs overlooking the Arkansas River.
The 1868 election was held March 13 at a time when Brooks, who had come from Iowa with the invading Union Army and had stayed on to join the Republican Party, was the dominant figure on the Election Commission.
Brooks, still seething over the election of 1872, became the Republican leader and was supported by allies who could testify to the crookedness of that election since they had fixed it themselves; in a curious twist of logic and justice, they rationalized supporting Baxter as the rightful governor.
