The aim of Grady was to develop a dynamic and prosperous country. After the fire accident in the year 1864, the city of Atlanta raised to a much beautiful and bold city. Since then, leaders like Grady wanted America to be one among the best countries in the world. He wished the New South to be a united and democratic place.
The main aim of Grady was to bring a nation where people had the freedom to express their views. He wanted to bring about a change in the history of America. This was made possible since southern nation changed to a nation with more freedom. Grady aspired to make New South a place with diversity. Since agriculture was the only form of occupation, it did not yield much of an income. Then Grady wanted the people to work in all the fields like the people of Northern nations. (Grady 1890).He wanted to indulge people in all sorts of industries and improve their standard of living. Grady encouraged the public to invest in capital funds which will improve the financial status of the country. Another aim of Grady was to improve the industries so that job opportunities would increase. Grady wished to abolish labor unions and slavery. This was ruining the people of America.
Another major aim of Grady was to remove racism and treat everyone as same. He strived hard to put an end to racism. Due to racism, many Americans and African-Americans found it difficult to work in the industries. A high rate of difference was prevailing in the industries which led Grady to abolish racism. African-Americans were not given opportunity to work in the industries were Americans were working. After a struggle Grady managed to change this situation. Blacks were also treated as other Americans. His dream of bringing blacks into "New South" came true. This gradually led to the improvement in the lives of slaves. Many people were living in the South as slaves' pre and post war. (Grady 1890).Grady freed the slaves from the Southern job market. He initiated a movement which emphasized on letting the slaves free and allow them to select a field of their own. This was one among the makeable achievements of Grady. Both blacks and the whites were benefited from this movement.
Till then race was the deciding factor in the southern nation. The whites helped Grady in this movement of helping the blacks gain equal opportunity. Civil rights movement helped them in abolishing racism and bringing people from almost all the countries. Since many movements were carried out, the Government passed various amendments to improve the people's rights and freedom with respect to racism. After the government's intervention in eradicating the racism, the African-Americans were given citizenship. This included their right to vote, owning properties and liberty in the
country. Since then the Southern nation saw a period of continuous improvement and development in all means.
Grady assessed that "New South" will definitely bring about a change in the history of America. He wanted New South to be a land of flourished growth and enormous improvement. (Grady 1890).Though the initial campaigns and movements for New South proved to be a failure Grady continued to fight for the up liftment of the country as well as the people.
Augustus Straker wanted to build a better Southern nation that would serve all people from all strata of life. He wanted blacks to be treated on par
