Storyboard Text

  • Radical Republicans after the Assasination
  • Now that Lincoln is out of the picture, its time to gain control of congress. We will control the HOR and Congress
  • Johnson's Plan
  • Now that I am in office, I will get rid of the south's crimes during the war
  • North vs South View on Johnson
  • These pardons are not right
  • The president is just doing what is right
  • Once Johnson was in power, the Radical Republicans were happy that someone could finally come and help make a harsh punishment against the south. When Johnson wasn't making the harsh punishments that the northerners wanted, Radical Republicans decided to take control of the decision making so Johnson couldn't veto them.
  • Johnson's Impeachment 
  • Johnson did not punish the south harshly. His plan was to return the land that was given to the African Americans to the whites, he also wanted to pardon the confederate officers and soldiers. He also appointed governors to create new constitution.
  • Reconstruction Failing
  • Panic of 1873 sent the country into a 5 year depression
  • The northerners did not like that Johnson was just excusing everything the south did and was letting them get away. The southerners obviously saw this as what was just. 
  • Rutherford Hayes Election
  • Remove the Troops and it is fine by the south if Hayes is president
  • The Radicals tried to impeach him, congress impeached him with votes 126-47. They then tried Johnson and were unable to convince the Senate.
  • Impeach!!!
  • No, he is fine in office
  • Reconstruction policies were fading as the Radicals lost their grip on the south. The Government also retreated from Reconstruction policies.
  • By this point, everyone was tire of the reconstruction and just wanted this to end. At the time there were troops in place in the south. Southern democrats decided that they would accept Hayes if the troops were removed. Republicans in the north agreed and Hayes was elected into office.
