Now that Lincoln is no longer in control, I can decide what I want to do. I am decided to give the South their land back and much more!
Radical Republican Plan
We must stay in power and not let anyone take our spot!
Lincoln had the idea of ¨forgive and forget¨ rather than spending his time punishing the south. He also proposed the 10% plan that stated that if 10% of people in the state pledged alligance, then the state would return to the Union.
After Lincoln was assasinated Johnson took control. Johnson seemed to side with the South by giving them back land that was taken from them, and appointing people into the government to get the 13th amendment, which abolished slavery, ratified.
The Radical Republican plan was about wanting the majority of each states population to swear loyalty to the Union, and also to ensure that the Republican Party stayed in power.
