10 They needed to rebuild! But how?!

11 Lincoln’s vision was to rebuild the nation rather than punish the south. I just want a quick and easy end to the war!

12 Lincoln’s Ten Percent Plan Ten percent of the population of each southern state had to swear loyalty to the United States Except for high ranking officers, all confederate soldiers would be pardoned He did not demand equality for African Americans The state could set up a new government ▫As long as the government set free all slaves

13 Congress thought Lincoln’s plan was too generous, so they didn’t pass his plan

14

15 Radical Republicans Plan ▫Wanted a harsh punishment for the south They passed the Wade Davis Bill ▫Required over 50% of a state to swear loyalty to the US ▫Demanded equality for African Americans

16

17 Lincolns 10% plan was not approved by Congress Lincoln vetoed Congress’ Wade- Davis Bill

18 Until new state governments could be created in southern states, Congress put the south under military control

19 Lincoln is Assassinated

20 Andrew Johnson (Lincoln’s Vice President) becomes President I don’t like any of these plans! I’m going to make my own!

21 Johnson’s plan: Restoration Each state had to ratify the Thirteenth Amendment ▫Abolishing slavery Confederate leaders had to write to Johnson and ask him to be pardoned Did not require states to give equality to African Americans

22 Congress and Reconstruction The Radical Republicans hated Johnson Despite his plan, they put their own force into Reconstruction Passed the Civil Rights Act (1866) Passed the 14 th Amendment ▫Gave citizenship to African Americans  No person (regardless of races) will be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law
