This chapter examines the impact of the American Civil War on the relation between whites and African Americans on the north shore of the Ohio River. After the war, many African Africans left agricultural labor and moved into the towns and cities. They got to know the whites, often for the first time, and as equals—at least on paper. However, most African American settlements had hardly any churches, fraternal societies, mutual aid organizations, schools, and businesses. African Americans were also not allowed to vote and the racial values of whites on the north shore of the river resembled those of their Kentucky counterparts where potent racism is widespread.
