Did the civil war achieve its lofty goal of ending slavery and bringing freedom to Black Americans(Freedmen)?

Like WWI did not achieve its lofty goal of ending war, our civil war failed at achieving true freedom for Black Americans. By 1879, Black Americans were being regulated into being second class citizens, by 1890 were living in an "separate but equal" world being enforced by "Jim Crow laws".

Was it all in vain the sacrifices 600,000 souls lost in our civil war? Their sacrifice along with Black Americans(Freedmen) sold out to Embittered Southern White interest to preserve harmony within the union in the years following the Civil war.

The Civil War did not end slavery as to change it to Apartheid.
