Professor’s post: If only President Lincoln had lived so he could implement Reconstruction. If John Wilkes Booth thought he did a favor for the South in assassinating Lincoln, he was mistaken. Lincoln, as you’ve seen, was more lenient on the South than others in Congress. And the two remaining viewpoints were held by the new President, Andrew Johnson, and the Radical Republicans, who were virtually at war with each other over these reconstruction ideas (McPherson, 1982, ch. 27).
So let’s talk about how Reconstruction was implemented, and these three different plans that were offered.
