After nine years of Civil War and Reconstruction, Virginia reentered the Union on January 26, 1870. On that date, President Grant signed into law a bill authorizing Virginia's restoration to the Union.

He also lays the blame for Virginia’s segregation laws on the state’s legislators rather than on popular demand from the state's citizens. The 1902 state constitution almost completely disenfranchised black voters with measures like poll taxes and literacy tests. In her book, Behind the Mask of Chivalry: the Making of the Second Ku Klux Klan, she connects the development and the widespread success of the Klan to reactions to the changing economic character of the 1920s. 5 Owning one’s own farm was ultimately the goal for many Southern white men.
