1.04 Rebuilding the Government: Assignment
Part 1 – Complete the following chart using information from the lesson. One example appears for you.
President Abraham Lincoln

The nation to heal as much as quickly as possible after the Civil War he had also planned to reunify the nation as quickly as possible.
He had been killed by an assassin in 1865 days after Robert E. Lee’s surrender.
The plans for reconstruction had been taken over by vice president Andrew Johnson, who had then became president of the United States soon after Lincoln’s death.
President Andrew Johnson
He had wanted continue the reconstruction that Lincoln had planned.
The Radical Republicans had believed that he had been too lenient toward the South and they had believed it wouldn't be achievable for the south to change if the previous Confederates had came back into power.
The Radical Republicans had then decided to take matter into their own hands, which had led them to win most of the votes from the House and the Senate in the election of 1866.

Radical Republicans
To give citizenship to the African Americans and also give them the right to vote too.
The Radical Republicans had been worried that President Johnson’s plan for Reconstruction wasn't going to work.
Congress commenced passing bills that would change the Reconstruction policy. President Johnson disapproved bills passed by Congress. However the Republicans in congress had the capacity to override Johnson. Not long after, the congress passed the Reconstruction Act of 1867. Which fixed everything they had done.

Southern Democrats
To be able to have a south democrat be named in the cabinet and have federal troops removed from the south.
the had then Radical Republicans taken matters into their own hands and had taken authority over Congress.
The Southern Democrats agreed to vote for Rutherford B. Hayes only if he would name a Southern Democrat in his cabinet and he removed all federal troops from the south. The Reconstruction came to an end once all the federal troops were removed from the south.
What was the main issue relating to Reconstruction that divided Republicans at the end of the Civil War? If you had been a member of Congress at the time, what type of plan for Reconstruction would you have supported and why?

The main issues that had separated the Republicans towards the end of the war was to keep the South from coming back to the way it was before the Civil War and those who would liked to keep the South from coming back to it’s old ways were known as The Radical Republicans. I would also have attempted to talk alternate individuals from Congress to provide the Radicals what they needed without conflicting with the President. But I would have then needed to comply with what the President had needed as yet trading off with the individuals. The people are what also makes a nation. So we shouldn't be going against them we should work with them.
