I heard that congress plan was better for us slave though. Their saying that the state has to abolish slavery to be readmitted.
Guys did you hear the news. Lincoln has come up with a plan to enter the south back into the nation. he wants all the White men to give an oath of Allegiance to their old country
I heard that Congress won't agree with it though and that washington is basically in a battle between congress and the president.
Yes I heard that he doesn't want those blacks to have equal rights. I really hope he gets it through congress
Have you heard the news of Johnson's plan for reconstruction?
Even though slavery is illegal were still doing the work, we have to pay off our old masters and many of my friends don't have jobs at all.
I heard its supposed to give us food, clothes, and education. I also heard the civil rights gave us citizenship and made black laws illegal.
I heard they are calling it sharecropping but, there's good news. Congress is coming up with a new plan called the Freedman's Bureau and they're starting the civil rights act too.
Have you seen more troops around town lately
Yeah, Congress passed the Reconstruction act of 1867 they have divided the south into 5 military districts and took away our voting rights. I heard that Jackson tried to veto it but congress just overrode it again.
Did you hear that Jackson is trying to Stanton
We should pass an act that makes doesn't allow him to fire his Secretaries
We passed the act but Jackson still fired Stanton.
Congressman, I have an idea we should impeach him.
