Mississippi legislature enacted Black Codes
November 22, 1865
Mississippi legislature enacted Black Codes which restricted the rights and freedom of movement of the freedmen. The Black Codes enacted in Mississippi and other Southern states virtually reenslaved the freedmen. In some states any white could arrest any Black. In order states minor officials could arrest Black "vagrants" and "refractory and rebellions Negroes" and force them to work on roads and levees without pay. "Servants" in South Carolina were required to work from sunrise to sunset, to be quiet and orderly and go to bed at "reasonable hours." It was a crime in Mississippi for Blacks to own farm land; in South Carolina Blacks has to get a special license to work outside the domestic and farm laborer categories.
