Chapter 13: A Nation Torn Apart: The Civil War, 1861—1865.
Chapter 14: Now That We Are Free: Reconstruction and the New South, 1863—1890.
Week four discusses the Civil War and Reconstruction. The Civil War was between the North and the South and the North did win! “The Union victory in the Civil War in 1865 may have given some 4 million slaves their freedom, but the process of rebuilding the South during the Reconstruction period (1865-1877) introduced a new set of significant challenges” (History.com, 2018, para. 1). The current question this week deals with the advantages and plans that were to be executed after President Lincoln’s assassination and President Andrew Johnson’s tenure for the South and former slaves. “The federal government pursued a program of political, social, and economic restructuring across the South-including an attempt to accord legal equality and political power to former slaves” (The Civil War, 2015, para. 1)

In the beginning, each side in the Civil War believed the war would be brief and that their side would win. What advantages did each side hold that made them feel this way? Elaborate. After the war, Lincoln had one plan for bringing the rebel states back into the Union; Andrew Johnson another; and the Radical Republican Congress a third. Discuss the aims of each president and explain why and in what ways Congress took control of Reconstruction.
