This chapter examines the progress made by African Americans in terms of voting rights after the civil war, particularly those who settled along the Ohio River. Though the Fifteenth Amendment gave each African American man the same power as each white man, it was only on paper. By the mid-1880s, the status of African Americans was worsening. Formal and informal segregation along racial lines was being intensified and decades-long agreements between white and African Americans Republicans were being eroded.

Keywords:   African Americans, voting rights, Ohio River, Fifteenth Amendment, racial segregation, Republicans, whites
