The Freedmen's Bureau helped the Freedmen find jobs and gave children more education. It did not only just help the Freedmen it also helped Whites.
Constitution of 1868

The main purpose of Lincoln's plan was to help reunite the Union and to end the war as quickly as possible, so there would be fewer problems. I personally think that Lincoln's plan was helpful even though the South did not necessarily agree.

When Lincoln was killed Vice President, Andrew Johnson was taking control of the government. Therefore, instead of letting the economy fall he decided to make a reconstruction plan.
