Storyboard Text

  • That seems like an awfully low amount Sir, why is it that low?
  • In order to unite the country as fast as possible, of course!
  • I reckon that states should be able to come back if only 10% of the population swears an oath.
  • Bah Humbug! Lincoln is too soft on the South. We need to control Reconstruction.
  • Don't worry Davis, Lincoln would have to die for Reconstruction to fail!
  • I say we make it so 50% of the population needs to swear an oath! 10% is too little!
  • Maybe we should compromise and just start Reconstruction, what if something goes wrong?
  • If Lincoln keeps his plan, we shouldn't let any of the Congressman from the Southern States in!
  • Why did that he have to choose that guy have to be his running mate...
  • Now that Abe Lincoln is dead, the racist Democrat Andrew Johnson will become President...
  • As the new President, I say that we'll keep the 13th Amendment, but we'll have Jim Crow Laws anyway!
  • The Southern States will also be allowed right back in, and Confederate Leaders will get full pardons.
  • So what are we going to do about his ridiculous new plan?
  • We'll give blacks citizenship and we'll forbid states from passing laws that discriminate against blacks!
  • Sounds great, but what if he vetoes?
  • They have no right! It is in a State's Constitutional power to pass black codes! I will veto this Act immediately!
