Few white South Carolinians supported the policies of Reconstruction. Even fewer chose to side with the northern immigrants and former slaves who assumed control of the state government in the years immediately after the war. Labeled scalawags by their detractors, these men encountered much opposition, as they assisted in the creation of one the most effective governments to rule South Carolina.
