If the South is going to join back then they have to free blacks and we have to grant blacks freedom and equality.
But what is freedom without equality?Freedmen being free wont help with anything. without equality.
I Agree with you but the only thing I would change is that blacks can be freed but they don't need equality.
Well we can't just let the South just come back in. They treat blacks like they are animals. We have to make a new amendment that everything can be separate but equal. We can't just hug back the South.
Now that Lincoln sadly died, we can now do my plan. I think that reconstruction is a job for the president not the radical republicans.
I know but having the separation is not good. So I'm boycotting all white only stores.
Hey what are you doing in here? There is a white restaurant right next door.
I am the woman that is a white northner that is a radical republican and agress with what lincoln says. When the Civil War was almost over Lincoln started to think of what to do for reconstruction. He wants the South back but they would have to ratify the 13th amendment and give blacks freedom and equality and his plan was the 10% Plan. But the Vice President, Andrew Johnson also wanted the south back but just give freedom to blacks. His plan was called Restoration. Andrew Johnson wanted to hug the South back into the union.
Johnson now wants to just accept the South back into the union and I wanted to But I think that there has to be something in place to get equality for blacks. And that just because Lincoln is dead doesn't mean that his plan is out of the window. I need to stick to Lincoln's side and fight for the rights of freedmen.
I was not happy with all of the segreation so I started boycotting and treating blacks like normal people. I was always fighting the Jim Crow Laws. I was also trying to get a 14th amendent and the 15th amendment to help blacks have equality and freedom in the U.S..
