The Conservatives won control of the Virginia state government in
1869 and goverened for ten years on a program of integrating their
homeland into the structure of the contemporary United States by
adopting Yankee" institutions and ideas: industrial capitalism,
American nationalsim, Gilded-Age political practices, and a system
of race relations that made the Afro-American a free man and
officially a citizen but not an equal."
