What occurred during the early years of
Reconstruction? Notes 23
Robert E. Lee and the South surrenders (April 9,
1865)
4
  • Reconstruction was a period after the Civil War
    when the U.S. government attempted to restore the
    South to the Union (U.S.).

5
  • During this period, President Abraham Lincoln
    planned to forgive the South and quickly restore
    the Union.

  • In 1865, Lincoln was assassinated and Vice
    President Andrew Johnson became president.

7
  • Similar to Lincoln, Johnson wanted to allow
    Southern states to re-enter the Union as quickly
    as possible.

8
  • However, Radical Republicans controlled Congress
    and they wanted to punish the South.

9
  • They believed in forcing political and social
    reform in Southern states (by forcing them to
    recognize the rights of freed slaves).

10
  • Serious differences between Congress and Johnson
    over how to handle Reconstruction led to the
    impeachment of Johnson in 1868.

11
  • Johnson was acquitted (found not guilty), but
    lost his political power.
