A Carpetbagger

Carpetbagger was the term for northerners who moved to the South during the Reconstruction era, between 1865 and 1877. They formed a coalition with former slaves known as freedmen, and scalawags in the Republican Party. Together they politically controlled former Confederate states for varying periods, 1867–1877.
